Looks like it's gone - bargain for whoever managed to snap it up.
All the gear with no idea

Well done, LennyBloke, that was helpful. Not for me but for someone who has the skills, (and there are many on this site), this will not be a problem. It's a bargain, that's for sure.
Be well, stay safe.

Yep they're still there. Good price. I'd personally bin or sell the zooms as they are, then have a go at the primes.

Also worth noting is that each of these lenses has a cemented group which is prone to separation so that could complicate things.

If they're still around in a few days I might buy them as they're probably worth the effort, even if one or two of the lenses are not recoverable.

I have no doubt that you'll have the skill for this.

Thanks for the heads up guys, I have snapped them up, they will be a project for me when we get back to the UK in November. The primes should be really simple to clean, I've done a fair few over the years. Not really interested in cleaning the zooms, these will go back up for sale 'as is'.
