The ATX 100-300/4 is an unknown as to what to do with it.

The EOS AF version is pretty inexpensive used.

The 35-80/2.8 zoom will need to be sent off someplace for repair. (I
checked first layer to see if anything was obvious, but quickly
determined that three screws wasn't going to reveal the problem).

The older designs with aperture ring on the front are pretty easy to mess with, but I don't know anything about the rear ones. I assume JohnH could fix it.

  The sensor cleaning is whenever I buy the cleaning kit.

With the 5D, I found that a few well placed blasts of Dust-Off - from a partly empty can held upright, to avoid liquid egestion - cleaned off most stuff. Then a LensPen SensorPen worked on anything tougher. I never did have to go with the special brushes, swabs and liquid, magnifiers, etc.

I certainly don't miss those days. I've had yet to do any cleaning of Oly or Panny µ4/3 sensors. Did get a couple of dust bunnies on the A7, that blew right off. Then I realized I needed UV filters to cover the lensless apertures I was using on it.

All of which has to wait until our house in Iowa is sold. Hopefully before 
spring thaw.

Dust-Off is cheap at Costco and a SensorPen isn't much, either.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
