Indulging in the guilty pleasures of LBA...

I made a pretty nice score on eBay a couple of weeks back. This was right before my trip to Germany. The package arrived the day we left so I was able to pack a few things before heading for the airport.

- Pentax K1000 SE film camera w/strap, case, and cable release
- Pentax-A 50mm/F1.7 w/Asahi Pentax skylight filter
- Pentax-A 70-210mm/F4 w/Vivitar UV/Haze filter
- Braun 200/28BVC flash
- Genuine Pentax M42 to K-mount adapter (looks to be new)
- 49mm Tiffen Diffusion filter (#2)
- 58mm Tiffen circular polarizer
- 58mm Tiffen Yellow 2 filter
- 58mm Hoya HMC Red (25A) filter
- 49mm Vivitar Coated Close-up lense set (#1, #2, and #3)
- 49mm Lens hood for Takumar 135/3.5 or 200/5.6
- Hard case for one of the Takumar lenses (no lens though)

This lot also included a bag that held everything and some assorted stuff that I didn't bother to mention, including a pretty cool vestpocket episcope (never saw one of those before). I'm almost embarrased to say that I got all of this for $120 shipped!

I guess it wouldn't be right to post this with tossing in a few pics...

Nice score, Maxwell. You will be happy playing with your new toys, I know!

Thanks. It didn't take long for the A70-210mm to become one of my favorites. Between that and my A35-70, I didn't really need much else. I'm going to keep those 2 as my only zooms and try to pick up some decent 24mm, 100-135mm, and 300mm primes to compliment them.
