2-MX camera
3- P-M 100mm f/2.8 lens
4- P-M 100mm f/4 Mcro
5- P-K 24mm f/2.8
6- P-K 85-210mm F/3.5 (Rare Lens)
7-P-M 50mm f/1.4
8- Teleconverter , extension tubes and pentax slide holder , other filters

I would expect the presence of the case, hood, and diopter lens would affect the price quite a bit.

I have this lens and the hood is particularly nicely handled. Also the lens case compartment for the diopter. Although I have no interest in it as a collector, I should think that is where the interest for this lens is today--and thus my earlier post. BTW I have seen the diopter alone advertised for low $.

As regards use--it is hard to focus due to what seems to be low contrast wide open (have not used it with my split frame screen)--and it does not fit in most camera bags--so tough to carry. But that is not your interest.
