    I just traded an old iMac with some screen issues for a bag of old lenses. For K-mount and OM mount. I have an OM to NEX adapter. I'll have to get a K-mount adapter, but I also have an ME Super, so that's OK, too.

    OM:
    • OM 50mm 1.8, but the aperture ring is a little wiggly
    • Soliger brand 2X teleconverter for OM
    • JC Penny brand 28mm 2.8, but the aperture blades don't work. So that'll be a fun project. Crazy close focus and nice bokeh though.


    K-Mount


    A couple of lens cases and a nice sized lens box.

    The computer was probably worth $100-150, so I think it was a fair trade.

    I'm going to keep old lenses I come across, because I think a FF interchangeable mirrorless is not that far away, and the 28s will be fun to play with, as will a 135/2.5.

    Nice score...I understand the Pentax 50/1.7 is also quite nice.

    Yep, the Pentax 1.7 is very well regarded, especially for sharpness I heard.
    NO doubt in my mind FF Nex is very, very close...

    Congrats and have fun experimenting with your new lenses.

    The good thing is you can keep the ones you like and sell the ones you don't.

    I have the 135/2.5. It works well if you can keep direct light off the front element or it flairs. It's also prone to purple fringing wide open, but stopped down a stop or two it's fine.
