generic n00b post

So I'm not new to making pictures, but an acquaintance of mine mentioned looking into the canon ae-1 whereby I came upon the pentax k1000 and the pentax me super, and I am fairly decided on the me super between the lot. Now there is a thread on ebay I'm hesitant about purchasing (disregarding the fact that it's ebay and I can't check it out personally prior to buying) that comes with two lenses (a Pentax -m 1:1.7 and a Tokina SZ-X 80-200mm) and the pricing seems fair enough to me (around 70 after s&h) and I just wanted some opinions and/or insight as to what I am considering.

Much appreciation.

I purchased a Pentax ME body only as-is condition for $5 from KEH (with another order). I have a number of MF and AF lenses and they work fine on it. Camera worked perfectly and was fun to shoot film. In 1979, I got my first 35mm camera (the Canon AE-1) and it was a great camera. When I went digital, I went Pentax and because of all my lenses got the ME. Either camera is great.
