Am I Getting Good Deal?

Pentax manual MX & ME bodies along with the following lense for $120:
50mm Asahi SMC f/1.4 & Asahi SMC f/2 35mm
I'm going to pick them up this afternoon if everything is in good condition as the seller said. Please let me know if this is a good deal. He will also throw in a film winder. Thanks!

Whichever generation the lenses are, YES, absolutely a good deal.

Just the lenses alone would sell for that, Each.

So the answer is Yes.

Thanks everyone for the feedbacks. I did pick up the cameras and lenses. The lenses are very clean and the bodies have your normal ware, but are fully functional. The lenses are SMC Pentax-M 1:1.4 50mm & SMC Pentax-M 1:2 35mm.

Coming from P&S, I'm very new to DSLR - let alone manual lenses. I have a Pentax K100D with the kit lens and a DA 50-200mm lens. I was going to get a couple more of Pentax quality DA lenses, but prices for them have gone up like crazy in the last few years.

Now off to read up on how to use the K100D in manual mode with these lenses.

Assuming no fungus in these, you could be classified as a mugger by the local police.
