Hey all, I'm pretty new to photography and my dad found these 4 lenses for 40$ from some guy who didn't know much about them. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me anything about these lenses? (I realize pictures aren't really that great, these are the only ones my dad was able to send me) how much are they are worth/if they are real/what kind are they?

-thanks and i greatly appreciate it!!!

At least 2 look like FD mount to me = you will not be able to use them. CPC is one of the very lower brand names. Can't tell much more from the pix given.

One is a projector lens. The rest look like MF lenses, can't really see from the photos shown.
One looks like an old vivatar series 1 zoom.

So most of these are MF lenses? what about the canon lens? does that look like anything my DSLR can use?
Also, do you think it was worth the 40$?

We need some better pics of the front and rear of the lenses to tell what they are.
Except for the one that looks like a screw on the rear, it's the projector lens.

this looks like one....note the auction hasn't sold though, so i wouldn't say that's what it's worth neccesarily

this looks like it could be another:

all that said...are they worth $40 to you...probably not...can you possibly sell them, and make a couple bucks?...maybe, who knows...is it worth the time and effort?...in my opinion.....no

The biggest one is a canon 70-210 f4 fd

You might be able to at least get your money back on them on ebay, they defo wont work on ef mount DSLR's without an adapter or modification, both methods have issues.

Just sell would be easiest bet

Nope and you won't get anything for them either unfortunately.

In the bottom photo, left to right....

Yes, on the left that appears to be a projector lens. I have no idea what it fits. I doubt it has much worth unless you can match it up with a specific projector model, then might get a few $ for it on eBay. Not many people using projectors these days!

Next to it appears to be 28-135 Vivitar, probably a Series 1. That's likely a pretty decent lens.... It's probably a Tokina-made lens, based upon a Konica design. I suspect the current Canon 28-135 is based upon this design. Many manufacturers copied the original one... First sold as a Konica Hexanon made by Tokina, then as Tokina AT-X Pro lens for some other manual focus mounts, then sometimes relabelled as Vivitar and perhaps some others, in a variety of MF mounts. The first two digits of the serial number of old Vivitar often gave a clue as to who actually made them (Vivitar never has made much themselves, they just hire someone else and have the Vivitar name slapped on... Not that they are alone doing this or that it's necessarily a bad thing). Just looking at it, I can't be sure what the mount is... Those lenses were offered to fit many different manufacturers' cameras. It's certainly not an EF mount, though, since it's a manual focus lens. It might sell today at auction for $50 - $100... but honestly I haven't tracked prices lately.

Next to that is the CPC zoom lens. Proably not a particularly high quality lens. Again, can't be sure of the mount. Might get a few $ for it on eBay.

Finally, that appears to be a Canon FD "New" 70-210/4 on the right in the last photo. Good lens, but the old FD mount and not really adaptable to the modern EF mount. Might sell for around $50 or more, depending upon condition. I've seen really nice ones sell for as much as $70 or $100 in recent years.

So, Dad probably got a good deal and you might get back hid investment and more on Craigslist of eBay. But none of the lenses appear to be usable on any modern EF mount Canon camera.

The 80-200mm Soligor lens is FD mount. At least mine is and it looks identical. A rather useful lens if you have a camera that it works with. Mine's on an old Canon FT.
