Be sure to post bigger images because I can't see those. or better yet, use the image wide tags on the tool bar. Its just above the text box, 3rd icon from the right.

Yikes sorry about that....forgot to use the resize option on imageshack...fixed all the sizes and also added the 35 3.5 too.

Is $175 a good price for these?

The front of the lens ring also doesn't state what series it is...and since I'm new to Pentax stuff...can someone tell me which these are so I can look them up under the lens reviews

If you figure in $25 to $50 for the body, those 3 lenses are going to cost you $125 to $150. They're not multi-coated, but I think it's a fair deal, especially since you're not paying any shipping charges.

I have a bid in for that 135 now and it's stuck at $25.99 (I'm the highest bidder as of now), and I know it's going to wind up going between at least $40 and $50, plus shipping. And like I said on the 1.4, just go to eBay and see what the Super Taks are selling for. Average auction price is around $100, and the BIN's are all $100.

They're all Super Takumars, so real easy to find in the lens reviews here.

Ok...I just sent him a counter offer of $135. I looked up the prices here in the lens review database and the average price came to around $125. I told him I didn't have any want or need for the body but that if he wanted to let me have it just to get rid of it I would take it. I looked it up on ebay and they are only selling for around $10 it seems.

$135 seems fine considering you would need an adapter for those lenses. you might end up spending around 165 including the K-mount adapter. good luck !

Which eBay do you go to?

$10 was only some of the starting bids. All of the BINs were $30 and up.

Also, the average prices you were looking at in the Reviews are for posts that are a few years old. These Taks went up a lot since some of those reviews.

Pentax Spotmatic, Cameras Photo, pentax lx. Great deals on eBay!

As of this very minute the auction ending soonest has 15 mins left and is at $15

And it's ok about the lenses. I think I'd rather just pay a little more and not have to buy the adapter.

I got an email from this guy today telling me he would accept my offer after he quite easily refused it yesterday. I think I will just let him hang there as I've already made a commitment to purchase a 50mm from a forum member.

If the offer is good enough, Get them and resell one of the 50's.

You can compare prices on via the reviews. However, I have some of those lens. Or a variation of them.

The 50mm F1.4 M series lens I paid $40 CDN for mine. This lens I've seen ranges in prices from $60 - $120. I believe I saw one in the marketplace a few days ago.

I have a 135mm F3.5 M42 SMC Takumar lens which I had $40+tax CDN for it. There are a couple in the marketplace for $70ish.
