Price (S$): see below
Selling 2 very rare Komura lenses with the versatile M42 lens mount, adaptable to practically all types of cameras. Komura is a small Japanese lens maker well known for making some of the earliest super fast lenses. Also made many famous lenses for Leica cameras. Komura lenses are known for their bokeh and contrast.

1. W. Komura 35mm F2.5

Also found in Leica mount that goes for several hundred dollars each. This lens is in user condition with paint wear in several locations. This lens uses a preset aperture system with 10 blades. Glass is clear and without fungus. Front glass is very nice but unfortunately, there is a rather big scratch on the rear element. Appears that one of its previous owners placed the lens rear side down and scratched the rear element. The scratch does not seem to have any impact on the image no matter how I test it on my NEX. Does not appear in the images at all. As far as photo-taking go, you can essentially consider it as non-consequential.

One very nice feature of this lens is that it can create star-burst effects very easily.

No caps for this lens but will include a used filter to protect the front lens.

Price: $90

2. Komuranon 35-70mm F3.5-4.5

An interesting zoom lens made by Komura. Zoom, focusing and aperture rings turn and work as intended. Lens is clean and clear, without fungus or scatches. There is some minor coating marks on the front glass however but this has no effect on images whatsoever. Comes with both front and rear caps.

Price: $150 or best offer
