[SOLD] Long Glass cheep!

I have a couple old tele lenses that I am looking to get rid of.

The First is a 400mm Quantaray T mount f5.6 (manual stop down). This lens is actually not too bad once you stop it down. Probably the easiest way (on the wallet) to get to 400mm. Lens is in very clean condition with case and hood. I'm looking for $65 for the lens, or $70 with a Pentax T mount adapter.

Second is a Vivitar 300mm f5.5. This lens is very clean, I can only see a couple small rub marks on the body, other than that it looks just about new. Has a built in tripod mounting collar. This is one of Vivitar's "adaptall" type lenses. It is not compatible, but uses a similar kind of system. The adapter which is included is a M42 adapter. The auto pin has been removed as it prevented manual stopdown on my K100D. I'm looking for $30 for this one. Sorry no pics at the moment, if you would really like some I can try to get some but I am short a camera at the moment.

What sort of info are you looking for? The Serial number indicates it was made by Tokina, third digit is a 2 so I'm thinking 1972 vintage. Focus scale goes from infinity to 20 feet, but it fucuses past there a little so Close focus is a bit closer than that. F stops are f5.5-22.

Let me know if there is any other info you would like.

Yes, more information on the Viv would be helpful, particularly in regards to the mount adapter. The adapter is probably some T-mount variant, but some of those are very hard to find.
