The school I work at is decommissioning a bunch of lenses, which is a fancy word for "throwing away". So far, most of the ones I'm looking at won't even focus anymore and breathe all over the place. How salvageable would they be for parts? Who do you think would be able to use them?

Do you have any in the old original Arri mount? I could use some junker primes to fill the turrets of a couple antique cameras. I'd be interested in most any Arri junk parts.

Thanks --

I actually do a lot of refurbishing of my own parts, including remounting from one lens mount to another, and would enjoy the challenge of working with them.

Hi Annie,

I repair motion picture lenses and I would be interested in anything you might have. Thanks.
Please send me a personal message if they are still available.

Cheers,
Jean-Louis
