You would destroy the petina?!?!?!?!?!?!
I am a petina destroyer!

There is a "collectible interest" in these tools, complete with books and experts and myth. But then when eBay was invented, it became clear that every basement had one of these quietly rusting away right where Grandpa set it down. Like cameras but rustier.

This motley collection of bits is described as an "Asahi Pentax Adaptall Mount for manual focus adaptall lenses." Quite a mouthful, but I am only seeing a Pentax M42 adapter screwed onto something. It might or might not be a Tamron M42 Adaptall mount ring. What a crock of ....


The asking price with delivery fee will buy a very nice steak dinner for two at an upmarket eatery. I think I will phone to make reservations for Saturday night.

I got the ugliest look ever from a guy selling cast iron skillets when I told him I planned to cook with them...

But these are antiques!

They are antique pans. Made of iron. They do not wear out.

If taken care of, they will look the same after another 50 years of me cooking on them...

Optimism club strikes again :

ASAHI PENTAX SPOTMATIC F CAMERA - WITH ACCESSORIES | eBay

A Complete Film Camera Setup | eBay

Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm Camera With Accessories And Carry Case | eBay

Vintage Pentax Camera & Lens Set | eBay

For some reason, not a single bid on any of them.

This dumb description caught my eye. It turns out that is actually an MEF. They must be relatively rare and therefore collectable. But is it worth GBP199? Nope.

I think the description was just taken from the lens - presumably the seller didn't realise it was interchangeable ! Didn't sell, re-listed - how strange.

Pentax K10D in good condition. Comes with battery grip, 4 batteries, charger, 300mm and 55mm lens. Great camera.


Digital SLR - Pentax K10D for sale in Standerton (ID:435973637)
Another overpriced K10D? It may come with a bunch of goodies and a nice bag, but so what? Anybody with that kind of money to spend will just go to the nearest department store and go home with a brand new Canon EOS 4000D.

What a ripoff! They need to go to some of the back alley marketplaces in Hong Kong where one can get brand new vintage products!

They even offer "Good price for you!"

Let's just look at the box, and ignore the camera itself, shall we ?
