New Pentax Super Program

This is just a short post offering thanks to the 2nd hand camera gods.

After some post-purchase trepidation, I just received today an item I bought recently via eBay - a Pentax Super Program body mounted with a Tokina 17mm f3.5, all for AUD $76.

It sounded OK in the listing but now that it is in hand the body is just great (aside from a dirty focusing screen) and the Tokina 17mm is in superb condition. Wow, what a great lens.

Thanx camera gods.

I think they are related to the used car gods

Whatever. I know from previous bad 2nd hand purchases that they are strict gods, and they usually demand sacrifices.

If you don't oblige with a public act of homage, you get a horrible lemon that will play up at every opportunity and cause you horrible grief.
