Nikkor-N 24mm/f2,8 in very good condition, but with long security number on the barrel. It is a classic version with a ribs. Cost me $30.-

Well Ive been behaving myself quite well this year so far but given its payday I couldn't resist nabbing a Peisker Berlin 250mm f5.5 lens on the cheap.. 😁

A lot of seven lenses, most of which seem to functional (but two I can't use because of incompatible mounts A-mount And PB-mount)
This one is the only broken one. Focus ring won't budge at all. Aperture works though. It came with a Pentax rear cap so not entirely a loss. It has no name ring but I believe it is the Cosina MC Cosinon-T 135mm 1:3.5

A mc Pentacon Practikar PB 70-210mm 1:4-5.6 Seems to be in full working order but can't test electrical contacts. Nice solid metal feel probably a Sigma.

This was the lens I bought the lot for Tamron SP Adaptall-2 70-210mm 1:3.5 (19AH) It seems to be in full working order though the zoom can be a bit loose. Despite that it doesn't creep.

Another useless one for Pentax Minolta 70-210mm 1:4 AF AKA beer can

This was my bonus/ security lens if the Tamron was a dud. Very yellow Super-Takumar 50mm 1:1.4 Focus is a bit stiff but only in comparison other Takumars. If it were a czj focus would still be ok Razz

Another Bonus. The Hanimex 200mm F4.5 It has a lot of aperture blades. It is T2 mount but this one has a m42 adapter attached.

Last the Auto-Chinon 200mm F/1:3.5 also m42 Seems to be ok. Need to clean the front element a bit better.

The lens on this oscilloscope camera looked interesting, had to get it. I haven't found much info or photos online.
Most image search results are taken with a lens called OSCILLO-RAPTAR or OSCILLO-ANASTIGMAT DUMONT CRO.
This one is just OSCILLO-ANASTIGMAT and has a Alphax shutter built in.

If anyone knows more about these lenses it would be interesting to hear.

I've got one of those. It's very nice. If yours is in good condition, I'm sure you'll like it.

First time I have seen a Komine Soligor - It will be interesting to hear what you think of it.
Well done.
Coincidently my latest lens is also a 28mm - the Komura 3.5/28

I first seen this lens here: http://forum.mflenses.com/soligor-12-8-f28mm-21and-versions-t30866.html
Interestingly, mine doesn't have the IR mark like in this pic, the far left lens.

I bought mine knowing it has fungus so it may not yield results that please others.
However it is for a project that I am working on so I will post some images when I have what I want from it.
Cheers

Pentax 300mm 1:4.5 IF-ED



Not exactly an MF lens, but to be used as MF on my Pentax LX or on the Sony A7 series!

Beautiful finde, Hope you'll show us some shots of it. I wonder how does it do the ED glass.

found a Yashica ML Zoom 28-85mm at the flea market today, will probably have to do a comparison test now with my fujica and tamron of similar configuration.

Soligor / Norita 17/4. A not bad bargain at just over a c-note (especially compared with ones with the makers name ring), only the later Tokina sometimes goes for any less.

Hmm - I sometimes think that all the talk of some factories being better than others is just that - talk.
I have had lenses from KMZ, Valdai, Arsenal, Fed, KOMZ, MMZ, Vologda and ZOMZ.
They have all been good.
Most of the talk is internet drivel.

Interesting lens! According to some sources it was sold in GB by the Minolta distributor while Minolta did not yet have it's own 17mm lens.

MC Volna-3 attached to the Kiev-60 body.
I hadn't shoot film since 90s, so why not start using medium format immediately, right? Laughing

Nice one. I forgot to bid a camera combo which include this Soligor 17mm f/4. Is it good? Kind of rare one.
