If anyone would rather not have the camera bodies with the lenses, I'll knock
off $5 from the cost, and shipping should be pretty cheap too, then (prob ~$5
in CONUS, $10 outside CONUS)

I'm mainly including the bodies as bonuses, and selling the lenses themselves.
I have not shot film through these bodies, but in each case the person I bought
them from assured me they were fully functional. But if you have LBA and not CBA,
I'll pull the lenses off for you

A heavy, quick rainstorm just moved through, so the little guy & I took a walk
down to the rock garden to gather some demonstration shots from the Super
Takumar 135 f/3.5:

























All ISO 400.

Most are cropped to some degree, and some contrast adjustments in the leaves
and black eyed susans shots. Dragonfly shot is a tight crop.

Sorry, Mis.

Was just up at the cabin this weekend with the 12-24, 50-135 and Tammy 70-300, and all I was wishing for were my Taks

The other lenses were nice, but everyone who's shot Taks knows that they have that extra IQ gear, especially over zooms.

In June I had my M 85 f/2 up there, and I was missing my M's also this time. Lesson learned, find a place for at least one Tak, M or K, or your karma suffers.

Some large aperture shots taken yesterday with the Vivitar/Kiron 75-205. This is an
excellent,inexpensive, near-mint zoom - sharp at every FL, very well made, nice
multicoatings.

It's serial # 22, which means Kiron-made, same as several series-1's, including
the 105 macro. Kiron made some beautiful, precision optics, and they're fun to own
when you run across them.

Vivitar pending sale, 150 + 2nd adapter has been sold.

Yes, Simon, deja vu indeed Fortunately (or unfortunately) for me, people
around here like to sell a bunch of old bodies+lenses together (craigslist, garage
sales, co-workers, etc etc,) and I'll often snatch them up if there's something in
there I want. Works great, but then I need to sell off the duplicates to try to break
even.

After reading up on the 150/4 ... it is meant to be a lot better than the 200 that I have .... and I can see the 200 isn't as high a quality as the remainder of the Taks I have.

I am a little cash strapped at the moment ... but if there's no bites on this I am interested. But it won't be for approx a fortnight though.
