My new purchase of old gear

I picked up a small set a few days ago from a charity shop. It was 50 euro all together, which I feel was a fair deal, for both parties. Didn't realise the problems until I was on my way to the airport, wasn't going to haggle on price either way as it was a charity shop.

Anyhow, the spotimatic has a cracked prism inside and the 50/1.4 has a slightly jammed focus throw (which will be easily fixed) however the real beauty is the 28mm, with case , and hood...

Pics below:

The Spot is in fine condition and works well, but the prism
The case's are in good condition
The 28mm 3.5 is immaculate, as new! and filter
The 50mm 1.4 Super-Tak is excellent but a little jammed. and pentax filter

*smiles*

p.s. I like submitting my own and reading others "buys"

Nice find! I'm glad i'm not the only one that looks for these old cameras. The 28mm and 50mm are more than worth the price of 50 euros

Thanks, you think? It is for charity so i feel I really should contribute a little more, if they're worth more than the 50.

Update! I've just seen the crazy ebay auction post of what a super-tak sold for?! rediculous

Either way, I will probably fix the spot, and then either keep it or sell it.

The 28mm and 50mm I'm not sure about...decisions!

If you do an eBay search, there's a guy selling that 28 hood for SIXTY BUCKS!!! Just saw it yesterday.

I can't link to eBay from the office so I can't provide the link here, but check it out.

I have 4 and would never part with any of them.

If I come into some real cash one day, I want an all-black.

An all-black Spotmatic. No silver.

There's also a special edition brown one out there.
