What Pentax lenses and body in (this bad) picture?

Somebody is selling a Pentax SLR and two lenses at a local Ebay-like site and only provides this bad photo. The seller doesn't specify what the gear in question is and as you see, the photo doesn't help much either. I assume the seller isn't providing more info or answers to questions due to being clueless about selling on the web more than being fraudulent. However, I'll keep an eye on this and if it's going dirt cheap, I might take a chance.

So, what do you think the gear in question is? The short (prime?) lens seems to have a Takumar text and I think the other one is a ***-135mm zoom. And the body?

Any help appreciated.

The angles on the body suggest a Super Program or Program Plus. If the short one is a Takumar, it's a teleconverter, K mount.

Can you message the seller to ask?

I and two other people have asked him/her on the auction site with no answer, but I haven't tried PM. Then again, he/she should get automatic email of the questions...

the lens looks like an A35-105/3.5 which is a very good lens, if it is that one.

That was my first thought, too, so I got mine out to compare it to the pic. Yep..that's the macro range marked in green on the side.

Looks like a Takumar-A teleconverter. And--very much so a guess--a Quantaray zoom with close focusing (probably branded as a macro). In other words, the items were acquired with cost being a primary consideration.

From experience, never buy from a crappy photo. Masks too much. I've gotten myself into, and only once out of, too many purchases I wasn't happy with when this was the case.
