Here is an image taken with the old Pentax. Digital may rule most of the picture taking market but the magic of using film cameras still around. It is nice to not seeing how your picture comes out right away.
yes, I love the anticipation of getting my film back from the lab!

Lucky girlfriend...
Last time i saw in camera second store it's sold for $75 body only..and estimate for the lens for $40-45...heheheh...
hmm, M-50/1.4's seem to go for more like $80 on ebay these days. I want one, but I can't imagine it being that much better than my 1.7 to pay that much money for it.

I basically did the same thing as the OP, not once but twice.

I picked up a spotmatic with a 50mm lens and a 35 mm lens for $5.00 at one garage sale. Was told that it didn't work. Took it home and found a loose screw and a spring on the wrong side of the cocking lever, put it all back together and every thing was fine except for the battery compartment was corroded shut.

At another barn sale I picked up a K1000 with a 50mm and 70-210 zoom. $5.00 for that one also and it, as a bonus, had half a roll of film just waiting to be exposid.
