    The rear element on my 135mm Optar has developed the beginnings of a fungus invasion so I need a replacement rear element set. If anyone has a 135mm Optar they are parting out or if someone has a complete lens with a bad front element they want to sell off let me know. I don't care about the shutter or it's condition. I just need a great condition rear set.

    Thanks

    I may be able to help you out, but I'm out of town until Tuesday. I'll look when I get home. Don't hesitate to take advantage of any other offers that may come in before Tuesday.

    Hey Charley ..... thanks a lot ! I took my lens out today and tried to shoot some late day stuff and I am picking up some odd flare in the Fuji instants I tested with. Figured I would see what the apparent fungus effects might be on that rear element and sure enough, it shows. If you can help out with a good rear element that would be great.

    Just drop a note on this thread if you have the part. Again, thanks much ... J

    I've got a spare rear Optar cell. The front cell looks like it was cleaned early and often by some old photographer's dirty tie - your basis Brillo pad look. I'll PM you.
