It seems everything is subjective on this subject. Why ask us if you should keep these lenses or if they're any good? In my experience every manufacturer seem to have produced some gems and some dogs, and with the plethora of rebadging in the 60's,70. and 80's it's often difficult to track who made what lens. In an era of digital imaging its easy to test lenses. Clean them and put them on a camera and shoot with them! (assuming that the ME you bought is not your only camera) If you like the pictures or at least find them not technically flawed then keep them.You will find no end of threads extolling the virtues of a particular manufacturer or reseller you will find an equal number of threads railing against them, in the end only by shooting them and seeing if they can produce the kind of images you want will you know. I own many lenses in the pentax mounts some are "name" brands some are obscure and on more than one occasion I have been pleasantly surprised by shots I've gotten from these lenses. Don't get hung up on what they are, get hung up on what they do.It's one thing to do research if you're thinking about buying a lens but if you already have them in your hot little hands trust your own judgement after you use them...
