Not sure if anyone is interested in buying some beat up old lenses that need servicing but I've got a Zeiss Jena 50mm f1.5 and a Kinoptik 5.7mm f1.8 - both arri std mount - that I'm looking to get rid of for cheap

The Zeiss has an issue with the focus, its not working with my Arri-S > PL adapter, also there are some bubbles in the glass and it's yellowing slightly. Not entirely sure what the issue is with the focus but it could be a good project for someone with the knowledge and time to flip lenses

The Kinoptik - which is a fixed focus lens - is calibrated to focus only several inches in front of the lens. I brought it to a technician to get it adjusted but he didn't know what to do with it! Anyway there's also a small chip out of the front element and some small amount of fungus it looks like on the rear element, although I don't find these issues affect image quality

I'm thinking $250 each?
