Scored some new (old) lenses

Sorry guys I just have to brag to someone that understands. My wife likes my finds, but I know sheís just humoring me. I watch my local craigslist all the time for someone selling off equipment they donít use or was given to them with out any knowledge of what they really have. Itís usually a bunch of K1000s with the standard kit lenses. Itís a small town with only 1 Camera store that even sells Pentax DSLRs.

Finally I spotted something worth grabbing up. A local photographer that now shoots Canon was selling his K1000 with Pentax A 24mm f2.8, Pentax A 200mm f4, and Pentax A 35-105mm f3.5. $145 for everything! When I went to pick it up he through in a Hoya 52mm polarized circular filter he no longer had any use for. Based off the lens database here at the average price itís $560 of lenses. For me this was to sweet of a deal to pass up. Now to get off work and go play with my new toys.

Im pretty sure the A 24mm is worth some coin. thats a bit of a rare one if im not mistaken. too bad it wasnt an A 20mm. or an A* 200mm macro... excellent deal though. you can take advantage of that or maybe sell them for a decent profit.

It can be hard to explain to the wife how great these three A lenses are. "Look, I get full matrix metering and P-TTL flash!" But the worst part is when they ask you why you can't get that shot. "Don't you have every lens ever made?" That's tough.
