Value of Super Program

I am looking to find a fair price for a couple of Super Program bodies and Vivitar lens. I received these as an inheritance and have since upgraded to digital. Both of these worked properly the last time that I used them, several years ago now. The lens I had continued to use on the DSLR but have also since upgraded to a modern 55-300 so all of this is surplus to my needs and I am unlikely to ever use any of it again and would like to sell it, as a package, if I can but am having trouble determining what they are worth. I see them listed from $20 to $100...

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

I am sure you will have no trouble selling it on the marketplace or at auction when the time comes. In terms of valuation, eBay completed auctions is a good indication as might be*. For reference, I paid $45 USD for mine, body only, in "like new" condition, though as you have noted, market pricing is highly variable. Top price, in shop, with CLA and 90-day warranty would be about $75 USD in my region (Portland, Oregon).


* Subtract 20% mark-up from the KEH price to get a good idea of street value, bearing in mind that KEH warranties what they sell.

Sold prices are what people will actually pay for any item. Asking prices are often little more than a pipe dream!
