New purchases today. 5 cameras in total

Hey all. Just picked up a box of cameras that had 5 pentax's in it from one of my local thrift stores. Here is what I got.
Asahi Pentax SP with Super Takumar 1:1.8 55mm
Asahi Pentax K1000 (japan)
Asahi Pentax K1000 (Taiwan)
2 Pentax SF1's. one with SMC Pentax-M 1:2 50mm
The box had none pentax cameras as well. 6 more in total but not sure if I am allowed to discuss them here. I got the whole box for $100. Not too bad I think

The Spotty with the SuperTak 55/1.8 is a great find. The rest is gravy!

Really great score! What are the other 6?
By the way, both K1000s seem to be from Hong Kong.

Thanks,

Great find. I particularly like the K1000 SE. I've always found a split image focusing easier than the standard K1000 microprism.

Also with the K1000 SE having the AOCo on the prism it will have been made in Hong Kong.

An Edixa Reflex! I find German SLR designs of the early '50s fascinating, as so many are quite clearly using the Exakta and/or Contax S as their starting point. There were even some lenses produced for the early Edixa reflexes that had an aperture coupling arm similar to that used on Exaktas.

The Agfa looks like it's probably something in the Silette line, but that's just a guess.

NICE FETHC!!
Your contaflex seems to be missing the lens, and the AGFA might be a Isola or a SIlette, both good cameras

Praktika and Edixa are very interesting as well,

Nice Score!
The Practika can be used as a camera, a hammer or a lethal weapon
The Paxette is beautiful.

Definitely a great score! The interchangeable VF Edixa looks intriguing!
Heck those cases look like they're in good shape too.

The Agfa is a Silette, its tough to be sure from that photograph but its probably a Silette L manufactured between 56 and 57.
