WTB: Fungusy Takumars and Prime Lenses


Link Posted 24/08/2021 - 00:24
As in the topic title!

I'm looking to buy these to sort out and clean

Mainly interested in the old Takumars and K/A lenses but will also consider F/FA/DA lenses.

I have a DA 40mm somewhere (with fungus) if you are interested.

I recently found a SMC Tak 50 with loooooads of fungus that I had forgotten to clean up. Maybe I'll do before/after shots for it.

Also I was reading an older thread where someone mentioned they threw away a 400 lens because the focus ring was jammed and it hurt to see... If you've got anything that's junk or spare then send it my way or to a nearby repair shop. The screws/pins/bearings can be used again if the lens itself can't be brought back to life.
