want info on two lenses

Just saw these this morning on my local craigslist. I've been thinking about a longer lens, right now my longest is a DA70. So I tried to search for these lens descriptions on this forum, but all I got was returns that would say things like "the word M is to short, it must have at least 3 words" or "the word f1:4 is too short, it must have" etc. So I could search for these specific lenses. I'd like to know about them, but I probably need a quick answer if they are good deals. So, how about it? Thanks for any quick replies.

Pentax M 200mm 1:4 lens - $115

price for the first one (if in good state) is quite good. THe second one I find it expensive. I have only read good things about both lenses.

Yeah, the search limitations can be a bother.

I think that if you put quotes around the words in the search string, it will accept 'short' strings.

Anyway, it really depends on the conditions of the lenses - market value for a 'good shape' 200mm for example, is about $60-$70 - market for mint or near mint would be 120-150.

People like to collect mint-quality Pentax glass, thus the difference in price.
