    All Minolta SLR bodies have been sold and a few lenses remain. Am I really going to sacrifice them? No, but I might sneak in, flick on the lights and yell "Aarrrgh" just to scare them a bit. That usually works on my wife. Especially if she's asleep. But now these prices are frightening on their own! Nonetheless, here goes...

    1) a 135mm / 2.8 lens made in Japan and branded Kamero. Glass is clean with no fungus. Has a couple of pieces of lint on one interior element, but I don't think that would make any difference. $7 plus actual postage.

    2) a 135mm / 2.8 lens made in Japan and branded Telesar. Nice clean glass, no fungus, sliding hood. Took good pics when I used it. $7 plus actual postage.

    3) a Vivitar Minolta 2x doubler. Nice and clean with both caps. $5 plus actual postage

    4) Hanimex Automatic C-Macro 80~200 / 4.5 lens. Has sliding hood. Took very nice pics when I used it on my SRT Super and wasn't inexpensive when new. Has both caps. $10 plus actual postage

    5) Auto Sears 75~260 / 4.5. Nice and clear, clean, both caps, smooth with sliding hood. Took really nice long shots. $10 plus actual postage

    6) Vivitar 300mm / 5.5 Good lens which has seen lots of use. Still ok, but by no means perfect. Will however take nice long shots. No caps. $7 plus actual postage

    7) Vivitar Series 1 Macro focusing auto zoom. 70~210mm / 3.5. Very nice & high quality lens with both caps. $7 plus actual postage.

    If you would like to purchase all of these and if you live in the USA, there is a chance they might all fit into a USPS Large Priority Flat Rate box ($15.75 or so as I recall). If you want to do that, please let me know. I will sell all 7 for $42 plus postage.

    PayPal ok for international, check/cash/money order for US buyers, please.

    Thanks for the offer, Nicholai. I must leave to have lunch with my wife now, but please let me weigh this and get an idea on the cost of shipping to Denmark after we eat.
    Jon

    It appears it will weigh 1.5 pounds and first class international to Denmark will cost $14.74. This is probably the worst case scenario. It is entirely possible that the scales at the USPS might weigh it at a few ounces less than my scales, and this could save you some $. So we have at least 2 options, amigo: one---You PM me your address. I'll mail it and then I can tell you what the total was so you can pay the correct amount. two---You move to Texas and I could send you all these lenses for about the same price as one sent to Denmark. Not to overlook the possibility of becoming a cowboy. Maybe a singing cowboy.

    Option #2 is my choice, too. While you're packing your luggage, you can listen to one of the songs we'll teach you when you arrive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4GpVdutC8g

    And of course you'll need to learn another language, so you can listen to these 2 nice songs, also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIFNrBZDTNE&feature=related and this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQFdklf8cCo

    Or here is a Frenchman who can sing in Spanish like a champ: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWBYzRZi6Wg&feature=related and another here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5Y4MP6o1cg&feature=relmfu

    See what you have to look forward to over here?

    Hi Jon,

    If not spoken for already, I'll take #2 and #6 (telesar 135 2.8 and Vivitar 300 5.5).

    Thanks!

    Nicholai hasn't answered, so I'd say they're yours. Please send a PM with your address.

    Jon, if the Viv Series 1 70-210 is still available I am ready willing and able to take it. Because you are practically giving it away, I am going to let go of my 80-200mm Cosina for s/h to anyone on APUG who wants/needs one.
