Hi from New Zealand!

Hi all, I'm Adam, 22, and I live in New Zealand.

Recently got given by my Grandad a Pentax SP1000 with 4 lenses, pistol grip with shutter trigger, 2 flashes and original leather cases.

Got a few films for it and had fun taking photos with it

Not sure what all of it is worth for insurance purposes but nothing google can't help with I suppose

Welcome to the forum.

The section Lens Review at PF (Pentax Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database) may help to find what your lenses are worth. If you are unsure about a lens name, post some photographs of the lens (front, back, sides) and PF members will try to help.

Welcome to the forum Adam.

There is a Kiwi thread on this forum which has a range of discussions.

Also, if you keep an eye on TM both lens (there is a pentax list there) and film cameras (search on pentax) within a few weeks you will have a pretty good idea of what your lenses and camera are selling for.

Welcome from Chicago!
Looks like your grandfather gave you a nice kit! I'm sure it served him very well.
