Before I toss them


I have just upgraded to a K200D from a SFXn which I purchased in 1990. I have not used the camera in years and was surprised to realise that the battery still has some juice.

Unfortunately, it seems that the curtain is damaged as it does not open when the shutter button is depressed.

Anyway, I am about to discard of it and before I do that, was wondering of anyone would be interested in having it along with a 70-210 mm lens. The lens does seem to have a fungus growth, but I thought I would ask.

I am in the Orlando area until Thursday, if anyone is interested.

I have an SF-1 and IIRC you need film in the camera for the shutter curtain to activate don't you.
No juice in my battery to test.

Also if the back is open IIRC again, it will not fire.

Just going on memory here.
