I just got all this stuff for $15!

Sometimes it pays off scouring flea market and junk stores...

Chinon CE-4 (fully functional) K-mount SLR with:
Pentax-M 135/3.5
Chinon 28/2.8
Chinon 50/1.7
Set of 3 Vivitar extension rings



All in great condition with nice glass, in original cases/pouches. Nothing special, but hey. Looking forward to trying out that M 135 and seeing whether I should keep that, or my current Chinon 135 (from the same series as the 50 and 28 I just got)

Also, there should be a general "flea market finds" thread!

Congrats! The 135mm alone is worth more. I used to have a 2.8/28mm Chinon which I liked a lot and regret selling.

Don't know about the rest, but that M it's a GREAT lens - although tiny. You'll see my friend.

I think you got some very useful extension tubes very cheap, and some acessories with them! Ibland har man turen med sig!

Great score, it was worth it to get the M 135 f3.5 alone, a real sharp lens. You have to love flea markets, I found a pristine Pentax-F 50mm f1.7 yesterday for $40. I'm still on a high.

Oh yeah, that is a sweet lens. I paid upwards of $200 for my used FA 50/1.7 (same lens, different decor) and it's easily worth that, so, good score

This means I will probably sell the Chinon 50/1.7 that I just acquired, since I can't justify owning two so similar lenses.

I have good experiences with Chinon gear so far, I don't think their old manual primes and cameras are far behind Pentax in build quality or optical quality. The CE-4 is rougly equal to a Pentax ME Super, both in size and features, but actually feels a little bit more solid, build-wise.

Going to compare it to my Chinon 135/2.8 (a beautiful cheapo lens) and see whether Pentax comes out on top
