Item Description
Hello folks!

Well, I have to start scaling back on some of these lenses. I still have some gaps in my equipment and have a couple specific requests in exchange for the lenses.

First, let me tell you about the lenses. They are all used and I have had the 42mms crew mounts for over 10 years, though none of them since new. I am not the original owner of any of these lenses. All of them were in used condition when I got them. No major concerns for overall image quality in my opinion, but all of them have seen their share of years. They aren't terribly beat up, but all of them show a nick or scratch. Some small particles inside the glass also exists on these lenses, but like I write above, I do not see any trouble regarding image quality.

You can see all of them here (including some example images from the lenses on my K200D):

The lineup is:

3 42mm screw mounts, 2 of them are auto aperture available.

Protonar 75-205mm f/3.8 75-205mm

Vivitar Wide Angle f/2.5 28mm

Helios 44-2 f/2 58mm (the glass in the best condition out of the lot in my opinion)

And one KA mount.

Tau Five Star f/3.5 35-75mm zoom

Tou/Five Star MC Auto Zoom f/3.5 35-70mm on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

If I get lucky enough to entice somebody to take all these lenses, I am asking for a super wide prime lens in exchange. Brand does not matter, and I don't need auto aperture. A 42mm screw mount would work. Beat up looking is quite alright as long as it works well with no imaging issues.

If you are interested in any of them individually, please offer me something interesting. I am looking for macro primes, flash units for my K200D, battery grip for the K200D, etc.

Also, a larger bag than my Beseler would be great, something that could easily hold 6 or more lenses safely and with some weather resistance (not water proof, or course).

Anyhow, let me know if you have any questions, thanks for looking!
