35mm Camera Laundry List Fire Sale

I have several 35mm cameras I no longer use that need homes. All items are exactly as described. Prices are negotiable but do not include shipping.

SLRs:

Zenit TTL: Soviet M42 35mm TTL manual camera. Comes with ever-ready case. $10.

Pentax ZX-50: This is a 35mm autofocus, auto-exposure SLR with pop up flash and date function. Works great! $20

GoneAsahi Pentax Spotmatic II - Mirror is stuck in the up position, needs a CLA from Pentax expert Eric Hendrickson. Screwmount M42 compatible with literally thousands of lenses floating around on eBay for next to nothing. This camera is free to someone who wants to restore it. If you buy the Super-Multi-Coated-Takumar 55mm F/1.8 lens for $40, I'll include the camera for free.

Broken Mirror ME is Gone Pentax ME Supers: Two Pentax ME Super cameras. One functions but has a cracked mirror, one is broken. Both are free to good home.

Pro-Master 2500PK: Not Pentax-made, but a very feature rich camera! Sells brand new as the Vivitar P3500N for $199. Includes 50mm F/1.7 Manual lens, instruction book, case and strap. Learn photography with this wonderful setup! Fully manual camera with built in meter, has 1/125 flash sync and 1/2000 max shutter speed, plus diagonal split ring, self timer, and multiple exposure. A great alternative to the venerable K1000. $60

Rangefinders and Point-and-shoots:

SOLD Argus C3: The Argus C3 is a historic 35mm rangefinder, produced 1939 to 1966. Mine is a late production version, in leather ever-ready case. It's a simple, fixed-lens 35mm rangefinder that takes modern film. No meter, no automatic anything, just a stone-axe reliable picture making machine. Used famously by Tony Vaccaro in Europe 1945-1949. Mine is in great condition and works perfectly. $20

SOLD Argus C4: The easier to use, better version of the C3, introduced in the 50s. Mine has a leather ever-ready case and is film-tested to function perfectly. Also meterless and fully manual, but much more stylish. 50mm F/2.8 Cintar lens is very sharp. $25.

SOLD Braun Gloriette 35mm camera: The Gloriette is a 1950s scale-focus camera, equipped with a 45mm f/2.8 and leaf shutter. It's very basic, but absolutely stunning, with leather ever-ready case. Flawless condition and a fun camera to go out and play with! $30

SOLD Balda Super Baldamatic I: Produced in 1957 in Germany, a 35mm rangefinder with shutter-priority autoexposure that requires no batteries for its selenium cell. Tested with film, comes with ever-ready case, original box, and a second Baldamatic as a parts camera. $50.

Kodak Pony 135: 35mm scale-focus camera, like the Gloriette, made in America. Sports 44mm f/3.5 Anastigmat lens. Works, except shutter is sticky and slow. Probably just needs a cleaning. $Free, just pay shipping

LENSES:

SOLD Tamron 85-210mm f/4.5 Adaptall Auto Zoom with Pentax adapter: Great budget telephoto with nice 4.5 fixed aperture. Zoom and focus is smooth, glass is nice, but cosmetically a bit rough. $10

Deitz Olympus OM-mount 100-200mm Tele Zoom with DeJur 2x Teleconverter: Great budget tele setup for Olympus OM cameras. Come as a pair. Tele is nice, lens is clean and works smoothly. $10

SOLD Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 55mm F/1.8. This lens is optically, mechanically, and cosmetically flawless. Includes Asahi Pentax caps. This S-M-C takumar does NOT have the open-aperture metering lug, but is a fantastic lens nonetheless. 55mm is that lovely 85mm equivalent on digital, and on film 55mm is a very pleasing long normal. This lens is $40, and at your request includes the non-functional Spotmatic II listed above.

FLASHES:

Pentax Auto 110 AF-130P flash: Automatic flash for the rare and beautiful Pentax Auto110 SLR. $5

SOLD Pentax AF200T flash: Non-bounce automatic flash for Pentax cameras. Also works great as a manual flash for any camera. Comes with case. $20

Images available to serious inquiries. Discounts if you buy more than one item, and you can buy the lot for $100! Make me offers, this stuff has to GO!
