Reasonable Price for MX and 35-70mm

I want to pick up an LX sometime soon so I'm thinking about selling some of the other Pentax stuff I have lying around that doesn't get much use.

I'm just wondering what I could expect to get for my Pentax-M 35-70mm 2.8-3.5 and my Black MX's?

Any insight into what a reasonable price would be is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Here are a few data points:
Pentax MX - Manual Focus Film SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications
SMC Pentax-M 35-70mm F2.8-3.5 Reviews - M Zoom Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

You are looking at $250 ish for both. I think they would sell at that price in the marketplace, assuming the condition is good.
