[SOLD] Pentax SMC-A 70-210mm f4 Macro zoom; Pentax A3000 film SLR; Vivitar 28-210mm z

Photos of this equipment can be seen here:
Pentax Camera Equipment - a set on Flickr

Time to clean off the shelf! I have three items I'd love for someone to take off my hands:
Pentax SMC-A 70-210 / f4 Macro zoom lens, $30;Sold
Vivitar auto-aperture 28-210 / f3.5-5.6 Macro zoom lens, $40;Sold
Pentax A3000 35mm film SLR, free!; "Sold"

Shipping is additional.

Important information about the Pentax 70-210 lens:
This lens was purchased on Craig's List with a known fungus problem. Since the cost was minimal I disassembled the lens and removed the fungus. Although the operation was a "success", I would not try this again! Disassembling even a manual lens is not for the faint of heart, and I'd hate to think of doing something like this to a modern AF zoom. The glass on this lens is in excellent condition, but the zoom mechanism does have a lot of creep. I have used this lens after the clean-up project, and have sample photos available if needed. This lens model has gotten some decent reviews. However I have enough modern, autofocus lenses and this thing never gets used. Time to go!
(P.S. I bought this lens on Craig's List for $30, so that is the sale price. Just to be fair!)

Vivitar lens: This lens came as part of a package that I picked up, which included another lens (Pentax F 50/1.7, that I'm keeping), along with the film SLR and and a small camera bag for it all. The user's manual was even included! This lens is a one-touch zoom, and the glass is also in excellent condition. The camera and two lenses appear to be only lightly used, and markings inside the camera bag seem to indicate that this package may have been a police department-issued camera kit.

Please send me a PM if interested or you have any questions or offers. Thanks!
Paul

Thanks Matt. And if anyone's interested, price has been dropped- $30 each lens or $50 for both together. (Shipping additional)

I had some photos on Flickr for these lenses, but they have been deleted. I'll try to just post some photos to this sale in the morning. The Vivitar is in great shape but I can't vouch for its IQ, haven't really used it. As for the Pentax A 70-210/4, IMO for $30 ya can't go wrong. (And I don't like to keep things just sitting on the shelf that I don't use...offers?)
