Here's what persistence, a bit of luck and $20 can bring, courtesy of CL: From left to right: Kiron 80-200/4.5 Macro Kiron MC 28/2 Minolta MD 50/1.7 Kiron MC7 2x Teleconverter Optically, all seem to be in perfect condition. There's some other old stuff (a flash, film camera, old bag & bunch of manuals) but it's going to be given away. From what I can see, optically the lenses are clean. The aperture ring on 28 mm feels a bit sticky at f2 but moves freely after that. The Kiron zoom is a bit dirty on the outside, as if it spent quite a bit of time being carried around. The focus action feels a bit too light, not too well dampened - but this may be just the way it was built. Can't compare the IQ to MD 70-210/4 as it's raining outside, but from some unscientific shots in house they are close. It's shorter too, so that with adapter mounted it's about the same length as MD without one; sadly, it doesn't feel any lighter. I will see if the Kiron is easier to use handheld due to shorter length alone. At worst, I have a $5 lens to play with. Or some trade / eBay funds. I think my GAS is fully satisfied now !
