    Because they will be broke from spending all their money on equipment or because they cannot find employment?

    Bump!

    Aaaaaaand...
    If @480sparky is ok with it (since this is his donation) I would like to add a little something extra to this offer.

    I thought I had some leftover pentax stuff lying around in a box somewhere, and I was right.

    So..pending approval, I will throw in a tou/five star 75-200 f/4.5 macro lens (well, 1:4 macro)
    It's a pentax k mount, of course.
    Aperture works perfectly, lens is clean, minot bit of dust, but nothing that will interfere with photography.
    It's a push-pull, which functions perfectly. No oil on blades. Glass is clean. Comes with a front lens cap.

    You know what's funny? The kit I ended up with had a very similar lens with it (Star-D Gold Line 70-210 f/4.5), but I didn't include it with my offer as the aperture blades are stuck in the full-open position.

    So.......... absolutely I'm fine with it!

    the first thing I did after digging it out of the box was test the push pull and the aperture blades. I have an m-42 mount super takumar 135mm f/3.5 lens i wanted to use on my fuji, but the aperture blades stick a little, so it sits in the box.

    so...with Sparkys approval, I will officially include the 75-200 lens in this donation.
    I can either mail it to you to be included with the camera package, or I can mail it directly to whoever is getting it.
    either way is fine with me, i will cover shipping regardless.

    I'll just PM you with the recipients address. No sense mailing it twice, plus making the person wait just that much longer.
