It is worthy?

Hello,
I'm from Krakow in Poland. On our marketplace webpage I found
Pentax 67II 6x7 67 obiektywy 45,90,105,165 ZESTAW (2174205704) - Allegro.pl - Wi?cej ni? aukcje. Najlepsze oferty na najwi?kszej platformie handlowej.
So my question is if it is good deal? What could be wrong if it looks too cheap?
Best Regards and thanks for help

For a 67II and that many lenses, it's a pretty good deal indeed! Looks like it's in decent shape based on the description, so if you want to toy around with medium format, you should get this! Probably won't be of that much use in practice, though, given the rising costs of film.

There may not be anything wrong, they may just not know the value of what they have or are just looking to get it out of their inventory. Or it could be stolen. I would ask to see if you can get the serial number of the body (so you can research its age, etc.). Then check around to see if anything is reported stolen. Chances are if they give you the serial number freely they are honest sellers (or real stupid thieves!). If it seems to be in good condition, you may have what we folks here in the states call "a real find"!

Good luck!

...reference, Adam? I shoot a fair amount of film and have found prices to be VERY stable for the last several years and quite comparable to historic values. For example, cheap C41 color can still be had for $2-$3 per roll (or less) and Ektar 100 is still the same price ($4.79/36 exp roll) as when it was first introduced.

The same is true for 120 and sheet film (I shoot all three).

It is the year 2012. And I'll go out on a limb and say digital cameras have proven their worth so who doesn't have a digital camera now. These days for anyone to still shoot film does so for reasons other than how it computes on a balance sheet! And most likely it is shot in conjunction with their digital camera. Maybe photography is a hobby for some. So they shoot anything to try new things. So averaging two rolls a week could be a lot of film shooting for most. Wow, that really cuts into the beer budget.

That bites. We in the U.S. pay $3.89 USD at Freestyle and if you are willing to buy it as a house-brand (Arista.EDU Ultra 100) the price is only $2.79 USD.

well, i sold my 67ll bodies not because of the cost of film itself. It was the rise in the cost of development, the film labs closing one by one, the ones that remained had poor or indifferent service and the hours and days of operation got real short............
