    Kiev 60 and Pentacon 6-mount lenses

    So I picked up a Kiev 60 a while ago because I wanted to try an alternative 120 camera to my Hasselblad. But now I'm moving to Europe, I rarely use it, and don't want to bother lugging it over there if I don't plan on using it, so it's up for sale along with its compliment of lenses. I'm sure I'll make it over there and find a nice Pentacon 6 that I'll want lenses for, but that's a regret I'll have to live with-in the meantime here's what I've got for sale...

    1) Kiev 60 in original box-the camera is in great mechanical shape-advance is fine, never had any significant issues with frame spacing (only some very minor differences), mount works well, back is light-tight, etc. The only major issue is the feeder spool, where the fresh roll of film attaches, has come apart. The plug that sits on the bottom of the camera has a threaded screw that the spool/reel attaches to and the film sits on, and that thread has stripped away. I still have the three pieces for this (spool/reel, spring for tension, outside plug with threaded screw), and have just always loaded film by carefully positioning the spool/reel on top of the spring and squeezing the film in-once it's in place it doesn't move. I've been meaning to just simply solder the spool/reel to the stripped threads, but just haven't gotten around to it-I'll leave that for you. Was purchased about a year ago from a guy who claimed the camera was literally never used-and I put about a half dozen rolls of film through it.

    Comes with the original Arsat 80mm f2.8 in pristine condition-front/rear glass is spotless, aperture clicks are smart and blades have no oil, focus is smooth and accurate-it literally is LNIB, 10/10. Also included is TTL prism meter-works well, glass is pristine. $175 for all three.

    2) Carl Zeiss Jena MC Biometar 80mm f2.8 - Glass is perfect front and back, no scratches/fungus/haze/etc, aperture clicks are smart and blades are pristine, just has some light abrasions on the focus ring. Glass has just some very light dust in the elements-perfectly normal and wouldn't cause any issues, just wanted to put it out there. Cosmetically it's 9/10, optically 9.5/10. Sold!

    3) Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 180mm f2.8 Zebra - Cosmetically it's probably a 7/10-some abrasions, use on the tripod mount, but nothing that would affect its use. Optically it's probably a 7.5/10-the rear glass is excellent, the front has some very faint scratches that can be seen only with a bright flashlight, aperture clicks are smart, focus can get a bit stiff, but I never had any issues with it-just give it a couple twists if it does. There are some scratches around the very outside of the glass behind the first element-probably from a botched repair job-it never affected my image quality, but definitely wanted to note it. Comes with original box and hood, but no lens cap. $150

    4) Arsat 30mm f3.5 - Cosmetically this is 9.5/10-no abrasions/bright spots anywhere on the lens barrel. Optically it's perfect except a very tiny (<.5mm) coating flaw at the very edge of the glass. It's essentially just a bubble that must have formed when the coating was applied-it's essentially nothing, but thought it bore mentioning. Focus is smooth, aperture is perfect, glass besides that coating flaw is spotless both front and rear. Comes in original case with 3 original (green, red blue) filters and UV's on the lens. Sold!

    Guess that sums it up-you cover PayPal fees and $5 for shipping per piece and I'll get the difference for full insured USPS Priority Mail to you. I have some more pictures if you want them just message me
