Is this worth the price?

I came across someone selling a 35mm outfit for 125.00 -
  • Pentax PZ10 camera body & manual, 1 camera bag for gear
  • 1 SMC Pentax F 1:4-5.6/ 35-80mm zoom lens*49mm
  • 1 Samyang 1:3.9/80-200mm lens*55mm
  • 1 Sigma 1:3.5-4.5/ Aspherical 18-35mm lens*82
  • 1 Sigma 1:2.8-4/ 35-70mm lens
  • 1 Kenko 2x teleplus MC4 converter
  • 1 Pentax shutter release cord
  • 1 Quantum battery cord for pentax flash (flash and Quantum not included)
  • 10 filters-
  • 49mm+55mm+82mm Hoya- uv skylight filters on lens
  • 49mm Hoya- orange(g), 8 yellow, Green(x1) filters
  • 55mm Hoya- orange(g), 8 yellow, Green(x1) filters
  • 1 Hoya 55mm circular polarizer filter
I'm just really looking at it for the lenses and filters. Thinking it might be fair price for some old glass to play with on the K10D, or should I just put the $$ towards a new Tamron 18-250?

None of those lenses are particularly good - perhaps better to put the money towards 1 or 2 quality lenses? Though it isn't alot of cash, so it might be worth it - guess you could easily split them up and sell them off on ebay to get your money back after playing with them.

I was also planning on making a lower offer, not sure how low she'll go. I was hoping to go for less than 100, but wouldnt feel too bad about paying 100. Doubt I'd get much for the body on ebay.
Of course, I DO plan on buying some NEW glass, LBA is always lurking...
