All PMs answered. I've decided to withdraw the Vivitar 28 2.8 Close Focus, because I just got it and it's one of those lenses where it's resale value doesn't do justice to the IQ it brings. I think it's a $150 lens, but the market value's more like $50, so I'm keeping it

The Helios 44-M-4 is withdrawn, because I remembered that you need to do some minor modification of it to get the Auto ability, meaning it's stuck wide-open unless you do that. Most people wouldn't be interested in it, I don't think - I would, so I'm keeping it (plus, I just got that one too.)

I've updated the initial post with status.

Here are the remaining lenses:

M 100 2.8: $70 - Possibly the sharpest M, this one should need no introduction.
Asking so little because it has a dented filter ring - can still take a hood, but it
doesn't thread all the way on easily. Otherwise, cosmetically and optically

SMC Takumar 55 f/1.8: $35 - The classic sharpie with the Dr Suess bokeh! Build quality
and focus make you fall in love.

SMC Takumar 55 f/2: $25 - Mulitcoated, same optically as the 55 1.8, a portrait lens of
incredible quality for pocket change.

Vivitar 28 f/2.5 WA m42 (M06): $35 - This is a Kiron-built sharpshooter with great
sharpness and close-focus ability. Big front element brings in the color.
Optically and cosmetically, almost new.

Kamero 135 f/2.8
Kamero 35 f/2.8: Selling as a set for $35, because I almost have never even
used these - they came in a lot from ebay, and stayed on the old bodies until
I dug them up a couple weeks ago. Cosmetically and optically very good, and
the snaps I have taken have surprised me with the OOF rendering and s
sharpness - these two hit out of their $ league, problem is, no-one knows what
exact league they belong in. Treat yourself to a little m42 prime LBA!
