Something nice arrived on the mail

I just received a package, purchased on a local equivalent to Craiglist. For 115$ CND, I got:

A camera bag
A P30T camera
A Vivitar Auto 2000 flash
A Vivitar 70-210 f4-f5,6 lens
A SMC-A 28-80 lens
A SMC-F 50 mm f1,7...

Complete with ALL documentation, lens caps, multiple filters (including some B+W).

I was a little bit worried about the shape of the lenses because of the price (and the unsharp pictures) but everything except the Vivitar lens looks like it's new, and only a little brassing on the Viv is there to show it's somewhat old.

I had been looking for an AF fast fifty to replace my SMC-A f1,4 because my wife can't be bothered to learn MF. The F-50 fits the bill perfectly, and it is a cutie!

Expect my older, MF fifty to appear soon on the marketplace if the F delivers as it's supposed to. the other lenses will probably be offered too once I've played with them a little.

The flash might be useful for lateral lighting since it has a sync cable built-in... I'll play with it a bit too.

Nice catch indeed, the F50/1.7 regularly sells for this much alone.

GREAT ! I scored 1989 Tokina 70-210mm on eBay for $40. Works as great as it looks. No documentation but found one on the 'net. Good things happen as the right time.

Enjoy your new kit !

I will! Though I purchased the package mainly for the fifty. The rest will probably be passed along in a short while.
