    Up for sale or trade are two Vivitar lenses that came along with a cased, original-owner Nikkormat kit. Athough they are in outstanding shape, I don't see myself using them, as they are redundant focal lengths for me.

    The first lens is a 28mm f/2.5.

    The other is a 135mm f/2.8. (KEH is asking $76 for this lens in EX condition, which mine definitely is, if not better)

    Both have original front caps, very clean glass, and very minor external wear is present on the 135 only, with the 28 appearing to be near mint to my eyes.

    The 135 appears to be a "universal" barrel, to which various adapters for different SLR systems can be attached. If this is the case, then you can use this lens on other SLRs if you track down the proper adapters. (The adapter for Nikon F mount cameras is attached to this particular lens.)

    Asking $25 a piece, or $40 for both, O.B.O., or trade.

    I will trade for equipment or supplies (film, paper, chems, etc.)

    I shoot:

    Canon FD (anything)
    Nikon F pre AI (anything, plain F prism)
    LTM (need Summitar lens hood and accessory finders for 50mm and 35mm lenses)
    M42 (lenses)
    Nikonos V (need a flash)
    Mamiya M645 (need non-metering prism)
    Mamiya C (anything)
    Mamiya RZ/RB (need RZ motor drive and plain prism)
    Mamiya Press (anything)
    Linhof Technika III (anything)
    SINAR (need a flat board or one with a slight extension, and a recessed board for a 75mm lens)
    Pacemaker Graphic (anything)
    Kodak No. 2 5x7 (need lens boards and/or extension rails)

    Also looking for:

    Lee filter/hood kits or parts
    C stands, in L.A. area
    1/2 seamless rolls, in L.A. area
    Sunpak 622 IR head
    Camera cases/bags/backpacks

    Sorry. Not a member of the LFF, and don't want to sign up for anything else on the Internet.

    What's the scoop on the board? Would you mind cutting and pasting your ad from the LFF?

    I've got an M645 non-metered prism, but it's got some significant desilvering. If you're interested, let me know...

    TMBG,

    Thanks for the offer, but I am looking for one that does not have that problem.

    I imagined that would be the case, but figured I'd offer it up anyway :smile:

    BUMP. Both lenses still available. $40 shipped for both lenses, via priority mail flat rate box in the U.S.A., or make a money offer or trade offer. Would rather trade for a bunch of film that you'll never use than sell outright for $40...would be a better deal both ways.

    Somebody get these paperweights out of my life! I am in cleaning mode again and I want them gone. If no interest, I'll take them to Samy's and see if they will give me a roll of film or two for them. :D
