Upload & Sell: On
Since I have more money than tools and dexterity, I decided to have the local camera technician convert the lenses I'd bought with the intention of switching aperture rings. I gave them to him around noon and picked them up about five p.m. I then put the two pre-AI lens up for consignment. I won't make much on them but this is one way to give a bit of business to the camera shop and also relieve me of the responsibility for selling two lenses most prized by those using adaptors and mounting them of alternative cameras.
Here is my kit of pre-AI lenses, all of which have now been converted with Nikon kits. There are only two changes that could possibly happen with this lineup. If I found a mint copy of an 85 f/1.8 H.C. I'd consider replacing the H lens I own. I also don't have the 20 f/3.5 UD but frankly, 20mm is not a focal lens I'm inclined to use, so I doubt I'll add a second lens at that focal range. All but the 85 H are in EX+ condition. My shopping days are over...
