@voytek
You may send them on lucian_claudiu@yahoo.com. And some price requested. Thank you!
Yes it's kind of hard to avoid custom taxes, they got smarter. At least I'll try to see if this repaired and returned works.

@piticu

Sounds good, I would be interested. I live in Bucharest so if you are around we could establish a meeting and do some testing. Is your Pancolar aus Jena by any chance?

Thanks for telling me how the customs work form others than USPS. By USPS then maybe there's a chance because it gets to Post Office's custom. This postal serice is quite ok, having used it for other items( insured signed for and trackable).

Thank you very much!

i have a Jupiter 21 (200 f4) and a Takumar 135 2.5, both m42 mount.

Their conditions are described here.

http://forum.mflenses.com/viewtopic,p,111513.html#111513


i'm looking for cheap 35 or 28 on m42 mount (since i'm looking for a standard 50mm lens, and i've got a digital APS-C slr, where a 30 mm on it becomes approx a 50mm)

Hi,

I have a Hanimex 28mm 1:2.8 with a bayonet type fitting with the lens fit marking FX?

Im not sure what this fits but seems to be in good condition. (It def. doesn't fit my pentax) and comes with both front and rear caps and soft leather case.

And I also have a...
Miranda 50mm 1:1.9 with bayonet type fitting and hard leather case (no caps). This also looks in good condition but I can't try either as they don't fit my pentax.

I would be looking to swap for any Pentax K mount lenses.

Can provide photos on request!

Thanks

Samuel

Hi Samuel, thank you for joining us!

Hey,

Thanks for the welcome, my lens knowledge outside of the pentax k fit range isn't strong so hopefully i can learn a thing or two here!

Hi everyone!
UPDATE: trade was made, lens gone.

[I have an unused Carl Zeiss Flektogon 2.8/65.
I don't use it and want to trade for something useful.
The lens has never been used, or at least have no signs of use. (Almost like new, explained in pictures)
No paint loss, no scratches, no fungus, no haze, no coating damage. Just like a new one.
Aperture blades are free of oil, work as they should be, focusing ring is little stiff. Aged grease, I think. Rotating a few times makes it work easier.
The lens has original front and rear cap and original box.
Some pictures:

Matching numbers: good thing
EDITED: The box says "AUS JENA", but it is not the export version. Carl Zeiss Jena, DDR. Just as the little orange sign says.


Even smells like new


Almost scratch free rear cap


Those grey dots on the upper area (at 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock) are some sign of wear. I think the lens was mounted once or twice on a body.


There are a few very light sign of use on the bayonet area. Barely visible to the naked eye.
Dust and fingerprints on the lens body and the front glass, but this is normal. I have not cleared the front or rear glass...
Sign on the box say "Praktisix". Don't know much about Praktisix mount, but the lens has P6 bayonet. (Perhaps these two are identical)

So, I want to trade this lens for something I can use on a EOS 5D.
Here is my wish list:
Summicron R 2/50
Planar 1.4/50 (Rollei, Yashica/Contax, whatever mount...)
Flektogon 20mm (Exakta, M42, Praktica B, ....)
Rodenstock Apo Rodagon 4/80

Of course, just one of them.
UPDATE: Don't need to be in excellent condition. A good copy is good enough for me.
Maybe I overprice my lens a bit, but I'm not greed. Just those little voice in my head say I must have all the shiny precious lens.... Razz
Any offer is welcomed and considered!

(Sorry for my bad english)]

Thanks.
Don't know what happened to the pictures....

Very nice indeed! Look brand new Shocked and very rare AUS Jena export version + 65mm what is lot more rare than 50mm. I can trade with a 25mm f4 Exakta , currently I don't have 20mm for trade.

Little mistake.
The box says AUS JENA, but the lens not.
It is Carl Zeiss Jena, DDR.
The little orange (or yellow) sign tells the truth!

I have spare lenses to offer:

Tamron 80-210 f3.8-4 model 03A. It was said that the later 103A was better, but I have found this lens to be superb! I love it a lot, I have two and I am keeping one Cool Lens works really really well, exterior is very very good, focus and zoom feel great. A few minor dust inside and a tiny black fleck of paint, none of this affects the image quality AT ALL (but we already know that!) Adaptall 2 fitting (I can supply PK if required).

Also:

Hanimar 200mm f4.5, sharp at f11 and beyond, a bit soft up to f8. T mount fitting. Has a few marks inside, nothing major.

Photos:

Hanimar:


Tamron:


I am interested in getting hold of interesting M42 Preset lenses (I like preset lenses a lot, they suit my photography technique) or old PK lenses. I have a shortfall in my lenses of very short focal lengths. Otherwise anything quite interesting Smile

I've been checking this site an forum for some time now, but being in a gazilion foruns already Rolling Eyes I refrained from registering straight away.

But this idea for lens exchange... GENIUS! Laughing

I've got:
Helios 300mm F4.5 M42 I'd say is in vgc.
Sigma 135mm F2.8-64 Pantel.
200mm lenses in K or M42 that are F4 ou lower.

You guys found a remedy for the symptoms of LBA! Congrats! Very Happy

I just got myself a Canon 5D and I can see that I have some lenses, that will be impossible to use, without shaving the mirror.

Up for exchange are:
Helios 44M-4 58mm Mint
Mir 1B 2.8/37 Glass perfect a littel paint marks, but very close to mint
Carl Zeiss Flektogon Zebra 2.8/35 Normal used condition, glass is fine.
Super-Takumar 1.4/50 Normal good used condition, glass is fine.

I am looking for 20-35mm. I dont mind paying something so just tell what you have.

If the exchange program available also to the Sony/Minolta AF/MF lenses? I have Sigma 17-70 for sale or exchange. Looks like new. With about 16 months EU guaranty left. Including box, papers and caps. I'm looking for the M42 primes only. I need wide lens, portret lens (85-150 mm) and light weight (below 1 kg) but long (250+) tele.

Surely you can trade with any type of gear , but you need to count people here rarely take AF lenses. Perhaps better to try to trade somewhere else AF lenses to MF ones.

Anyone interested in trading a SMC Takumar 135/3.5 for a decent wide angle (30mm or less) prime? M42 mount, like my SMC Tak also is.
The lens is in very good condition (I can send a picture, of course), but I really don't need two Takumar 135/3.5's Smile
However, I don't have any decent wide angle prime (doesn't need to be a Pentax, but must be good optically and mechanically).
Preferably within Europe, to avoid postal and customs complications.

They are not in same price league you need to offer more for proper trade.
