    LTM Lens Collection. What do you think?

    I have been offered the following by someone who is selling off his gear:

    Hektor 135/4,5 with VF
    Elmar 90/4 no VF
    Elmar 50/2.8 with VF
    Summaron 35/3.5 no VF
    Hektor 28/6.3 with VF
    Superangulon 21/4 with VF.

    all in good condition visually and glass.

    all for $2900 or i guess that works out to 2700 Euros.

    My question is, does seem like a good deal to you guys for someone who would like a set of LTM lenses like this.

    No.

    None would offer the Mandler magic. Avoid.

    Why would you want them? Very hard to imagine 'someone who would like a set of LTM lenses like this,' unless you're the specific person with a reason in mind.

    If you're a collector, you need interesting and/or relatively rare lenses to begin or complete your collection.

    If you're a photographer, you'd pick the lenses, as Vivek meant, for a particular sort of 'classic' image quality.

    IMO these lenses don't seem like a great beginning from either standpoint.

    The only advantage I see is that you'd get a full array of focal lengths all at once. Is that the reason for your interest? Or you have a LTM body and no lenses?

    Oh i see.
    Well the gent is selling it as a set and i have always wanted a 3g so i figured that this way i could have a 3g and bunch of lenses all in one go from one seller in one transaction. My aim is to use all the lenses for a year and at the end of the year sell off the ones that i have used the least or like the least and wanted to make sure that i would not end up selling the lenses at a loss.
