    i'm not really sure whether it's still in working conditions or not. kyocero 28-80mm Macro lens might be still in working condition but i'm not sure whether it's mouldy or what. any place to find out? if not i will be keeping it or using it as paperweight as what espn said =.=

    Perhaps you could post some photos so we can identify them?

    Yah, you never know
    One of them may be a Hongchi (China made)
    I have heard mint Hongchi is now worth about Million Sing$.

    Rich billionaires in China now collecting. Extremely rare.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but that looks like a regular production cam.

    Perhaps you could try Cash Converter, The Camera Workshop or any of the 2nd hand dealers at/ard Peninsula area? But be prepared for a very very low price.

    Alternatively, e-bay might bring you better luck! Someone in another country might want it badly enough to pay a better price!

    I think before u put them up for sale, u have to service/clean/repair them first, right? Be prepared for high servicing fees, depending on how bad the condition is. If the mould has been there for some time already, then I think ... well, better ask the experts at the workshop
