Is this a deal?

Sorry if this is the wrong forum but,
I've run across someone on kijiji selling the following for $280US

Pentax SF1 Camera

Pentax F 50mm 1.7
Pentax F 28mm 2.8
Pentax F 70-210mm 4-5.6

Pentax 400ftz flash, and other assorted filters and accesories.

Seems like a fairly good deal, doesn't it?

The 1.7 is probably worth around 200 alone. I bought almost the same kit at a pawnshop a while back. Got around 100 for the zoom, 30 for the body.

I might even be interested in the 28 if you wanted to sell it.

for $280US it's not a deal, it's a steal!
As Vaughn wrote, if in good condition, the F50/1.7 alone would go for $175-200. The F28 would easily sell in region of $150 IMO. Personly those are the two lenses I'd be interested in. I'd sell the rest to get some cash back. I used to have F50/1.7. It's a terrific lens, I just wasn't using all that much so I sold it.
in short:

What, no one would keep the F70-210? I use mine a lot and I'm not really a zoom user.

I used to have the AF400FTZ, which worked fine with the *ist DS. The DL and K series cameras don't have the sensors to work with this flash, though. I think it'll only fire at full power with those cameras, or 1/4 power if you set that on the flash. Its manual zoom head can also control power indirectly. It has a focus-assist light and a setting to just use that, but it's kind of bulky to mount it just for focus assist.

The SF1 is a very interesting camera. It has just about as many features as the K-7, and is built to last forever. It's the opposite of the ZX series. The mirror has a cool spiderweb etched into it.
