Question on M50/1.4, M*300/4, K24/2.8, LX

Hi everyone. I haven't been following eBay much lately and their search function isn't very helpful.

What's the current going price on these lenses & LX? All the lenses and the LX have been CLA'd about 3-4 years ago. There are some marks on the lens barrels (see details below) but the glass is clean & clear.

1) M50 f1.4. There's only a little bit of brassing on the aperture ring, but that's expected.
2) M*300 f4. A bit of brassing on the aperture ring (normal). Some scuff marks on the body. The built in hood has scuffing and marks. The M*300/4 looks exactly like the A*300/4 except it doesn't have the "A" setting. I've got the 2 of them sitting side-by-side in front of me.
3) K 24 f2.8. Also a little bit of brassing on the aperture ring.
4) LX body + 2 motor drives + NiCd battery pack (non-working) + spare screen.

Thanks!

"their search function isn't very helpful"

Are you kidding? It took me about 10 seconds to find two recent sales of the M50 1.4: $61 and $66.

You can look up the others yourself, hopefully...

Sorry, I should have been more clear. Yes I can get information on the LX & M50/1.4, these are relatively common.

But I don't get much from about the M*300/4 and 24/2.8. In fact, I've never seen an M*300 lens on flea-Bay. (I'm pleasantly surprised at how compact and light it is).

I have seen the S-M-C Takumar 50mm f/1.4 go for $200, $175, etc.. It's very particular as to which lens it has to be though. I have seen similar go for $70 or so..

I'd be interested in knowing what you want for the LX body plus gadgets.. You can PM me here.

The 300mm as well..

I'm thinking of dumping my Olympus OM-4Ti as I don't see the benefit to maintaining to manufacturers systems. Let me know please. Thanks.

Bump. I'm still trying to figure out what the K24/f2.8 and M*300/f4 are worth.

M* 300/4 is not a very common lens. I'd sell it for about 3/4th the price of the A* 300/4 or FA* 300/4, since they both sell for similar prices. As for the K 24/2.8, it's an expensive lens, but no where near as expensive the FA* 24/2.

I just saw an A*300 f/4 sell on eBay for $800 about a week ago - if that helps.

Try to find a F 50 1:1.4 just be patient and you will find one and absolutely love this lens.
