Hi all,

Time to free up some space in my bag by letting go of some lesser used items.

First up is my N90s. I got this about a year ago and ran a few rolls through it with no problems. I have since switched to an F100, so it is no longer getting use. (Actually the F100 hardly does either, haha, the FE-2 seems to get the most film run through it). The N90s suffered from the "sticky surface" issues, so I've rated it as "BGN" quality. I cleaned it all up with rubbing alcohol when I got it, so it is no longer sticky but there are some spots where the "clear coat" looks like it peeled away. I can get some pics up if anyone is interested. I'd take $35 for it, Paypal and shipping included.

Next up is a a Nikkor 135mm f3.5 AI manual focus lens. I would rate this in "UG" condition. It takes fine pictures, but it has been CLA'd by an amateur so the name ring is all scratched up, the front element has a scratch, and the focus ring is smooth but overdamped (too much grease). Iris blades have a few spots on them but are nice and snappy, and the front scratch doesn't seem to show up in pictures -- the ones I take with this lens on my D600 seem fine. A testament to the quality of construction in these old Nikkors I guess. I can get pictures of this up as well, and I'll also take $35 shipped/Paypalled for it.
