    Hi guys still very new to NEX cameras but I have a 5n and am looking to purchase the following lenses from Craigslist. The buyer states they are all in good condition

    Rokkor 28mm 1:2.5 with case
    Rokkor 45mm 1:2
    Rokkor 100mm 1:2.5 with case
    Rokkor 135mm 1:3.5 with case
    Rokkor 75-200mm zoom lens 1:4.5.

    He wants 25 each or all for $100.00- I've tried to look up each lens and from I've read the 100mm is a good lens. I understand they will all be manual focus and just ordered an adapter from amazon.

    I have absolutely zero experience/knowledge on the other lens, would you jump on this deal?

    Thanks guys!

    W.Rokkor-SI 28/2.5 is considered an excellent lens.

    That's just terrible, you should walk away.

    Completely unrelated, could you give me the contact information for that guy on Craigslist please?

    Yup, these two are highly regarded MD lenses which actually fetch a lot of money...
    Rokkor 28mm 1:2.5 with case
    Rokkor 100mm 1:2.5 with case

    Good news just returned with my new lenses! Amazing thing while he was pulling them out & he also found a minolta md 50mm 1:1.7! He threw that in as well, SCORE! So 6 for $100.00 they are all in great condition as well.

    Well if it wasn't for you all I would have never purchased these! I think I'm pretty well covered with lenses for a while, only thing I want is a good macro. I'm definitely having fun with focus peaking, it makes it so much easier.
