Lens Prices

I am trying to find the going rates for a few used lenses.. Is there a place that lists the going rates or the current value of lenses anywhere?

try KEH Camera: Used Cameras, Digital Cameras, Film Cameras, Laptop Computers and More. they sell used camera equipment of varying conditions. They usually are a good starting point to see the price of used gear.

If I am looking for a particular lens, I go to *Bay and watch several auctions for that or similar items.

-or-

Go to keh.com and check their prices

-or-

Check out the Pentax and Third-Party lens databases on this site.

Prices are generally all over the place depending on rarity, reputation, and compatibility with current generation Pentax DSLR bodies.

The ranking ($$$$ to $)

  • Pentax LTD, *, and Pentax/non-Pentax cult classics
  • Pentax FA/DA
  • Pentax A, certain Takumar cult classics,
  • Non-Pentax name-brand third party (KA-type mount), certain Off-brand cult classics (regardless of mount)
  • M-42 SMC Takumar
  • Pentax K, M-42 Super Takumar
  • Pentax M
  • Off-brand third party regardless of mount, Non-SMC K-Mount Takumar

Regarding the Tamron TC, did you read OrenMC's thread on "absolute LBA.
The comments there may help somewhat. But please dont be mislead by the selling price of that item on ebay mentioned there. That is RIDICULOUS!!

ebay rates may not be logical, but they are the truest measure of what the market thinks an item is worth. If you're a seller, then take advantage of it (if you don't mind the hassle of ebay). If you're a buyer, then yeah, look for it somewhere else. The marketplace here is a great place to post WTB.

my guesses would be
<$200 if purchased off this forum
not sure, they don't show up often, but would be similar to DA21 in cost
i saw one for $500 i think on KEH but again hard to find
