A great S was unexpectedly found in a local thrift store with $25, like brand new and all functional

this store is on my way from the office to home, normally it doesn’t have much good stuffs, but that day that time I did not know why I drove to there and found this baby sitting there and waiting for me.

this is a jackpot camera finding in my life. A wonderful moment to be remembered for a long time
Congratulations! I know that feeling, almost of disbelief at one's good fortune.

Very nice collection ! Do you use any of them regularly or are they more for the looking than using at this point? which is your favorite in the collection?

I used to use KX and MX for shooting before. now I switched to digital camera and only used these vintage lens for shooting, it is fun too. For these cameras, I more used for displaying purpose and like to play shutters, it is relaxing...

Nice to see that the 110s were able to climb up on a lens and a tripod to see over their bigger cousins! Otherwise, the poor little things would be lost in the back row!

By the way, when I purchased that K2, it came with 50 F1.2.
Seriously? I had to save up for mine - 35 years ago.

A very sweet collection and great finds on the S and the 1.2. A black S went for just under $800.00 on shopgoodwill last week, it looked like new.

Thanks! Following your info, I found that piece. It was cool, many bids and got by a serious collector. I hope I could get a black K or S even AP one day

Yes, the seller obtained this bundle from an estate sale and posted online and only mentioned K2 in the title. Because of that, it missed many people’s radar.

Wow, imagine finding a black S in a haul like that! They’re as rare as rocking-horse poo.
