Taking a chance on a Lens Lot
Posted By: Cipher, 11-04-2019, 04:23 PM

I'll be working on some of the funkier lenses this winter, if I get any worthwhile results from my experiments I'll post them here.

Awesome! You didn't mention the eveready case... they're becoming hard to find in that condition. Alone, it's probably worth most of what you paid for the whole lot

The Pentax-A 50mm f/1.4 alone at the price would have been a good deal. Congratulations.

I adjusted my settings, it should work now.
Still no luck. Maybe you can pm me instead. If not no worries

Congratulations! You will have hours of fun there. And some items (like the A 50/1.4) are a real score!

FYI the unknown plate is used with the 67 Battery holder to add enough space under the camera to use it on a tripod with the cord underneath
Enjoy playing with the haul

The dead flashes might just need new capacitors? Do you have a way (or a will ) to see if they are leaky?

I just wanted to thank Cipher publicly for sending me the 67 battery holder and the plate. Thank you so much! Gotta love PF and its members.

If I got a couple of teleconverters and a 50/1.4 for $51 I'd consider that a bargain!
