thats just a couple i thought were decent. the whole place is just full of color in the fall, its pretty amazing.

the guy with the promaster doesnt know anything about it cause he is selling it for his sister, so i wont really know anything about the lens till i see it. but 20 bucks seems pretty good as long as nothing wrong with it either way.

just picked up the following for 65 bucks shipped on ebay:


1 AIBINAR ADC 28 mm MACRO FOCUS NO. 83216183 52mm LENS


1 ZOOM+MACRO 80-200mm 1:4.5 055 NO. 83216183 52mm MC SOLINGER C/D LENS W/LEATHER BAG

1 GEMINI 1:3.5-4.5 35-200mm MACRO MC ZOOM 67 M840 212128 LENS


6 gemini filters

2 old pentax k1000's with leather cases

i should be able to sell anything i dont want and make a pretty good chunk of my money back. even if this this photography thing ends up to be a passing fas in my life, i should still make a couple hundred bucks selling the kit i am putting together. i can sell it to a local art major pretty easily. also picked up a vanguard alta+204AP for less than 50 bucks brand new from a local discount store. cant wait till summer, this weather SUUUUUUCKS.

haha had to look up what that means. haha. i have an addiction to deals. mainly vintage bike stuff and moving into camera stuff now. but i make money on all of it in the end. i am happy to have gotten the macro lenses, excited to get them in the mail to get to work. can't wait for my moms gardens to come in in the spring, her flowers are always amazing.

You got all that stuff for $65 total? I'd say you got a deal! I'm sure you'll be able to get some great photos out of them & have a ton of fun with 'em. That Pentax F-50 / 1.7 is reportedly an excellent performer & worth what you paid for the whole lot. And you never know, there might be another hidden gem or two in there. Congrats on the score!

boo, deal was a bust. that 50mm/1.7 was full of corrosion and not salvageable. the 80-200 had a busted aperture adjuster, i took it all apart and could not fix it. the 50mm/1:2 had a jammed focus ring, but i took the whole thing apart and cleaned it and put in back together and its working great now. either way i cant give the guy a bad ebay score cause he admitted in the add that he new nothing about the the stuff and that any of it coulda been busted, but i dont know much about the stuff either and and i didn't expect the stuff to be so OBVIOUSLY broken you know? either way i can sell the k1000 bodies for 20 each, and i have some cool stuff to mess with for like 25 bucks. i like making one off/home-made kinda stuff so ill figure something out with the busted lenses. also the guy sent a pretty nice case logic camera bag with the stuff that i didnt know he was givin me, and i was in the market for one so that saved me some cheese too. and i made 1300 bucks on ebay last month! puerto rico here i come (in July)! gotta go read up on using manual lenses on my kx. peace.
