Got a couple bodies, some lenses and flashes...

So I recently acquired another 'kit' to get to a gem, so now I have a couple film bodies and three lenses that I have no intention of using, are they worth selling? And if so, how much will they fetch me?

This is what I have;

1. Pentax K1000 in amazing shape, with manual, SN7717019. The original owner somehow etched his name in the base plate under the camera.

2. Pentax Super-A also in good shape, SN1564064 (no etchings)

3. Pentax-M 50mm f/2 SN8724462 with feet-meter conversion table that has the lens serial number on it, never seen that before and some unopened lens cleaning cloth from whenever the lens was made.

4. Pentax-M 75-150mm f/4 SN7217422

5. JCPenney A-KR 135mm f/2.8 SN85121948 with manual

6. JCPenney flash model 624-4407 with manual

7. Sunpak flash model auto 144PC Thyristor

The k1000 will probably sell for very close to the same amount as the Super A, and is in my opinion not as good of a camera. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with a K1000, the Super A is just better.

Well as luck would have it, I got a KEH catalog in the mail today so I can price this stuff myself now. I think I made out pretty good today, I got the Pentax Super-A with 50mm attached, the M 75-150mm and the Sunpak flash for $125, which on its own doesn't sound like such a deal until you see that the lens sitting on the Super-A was the Pentax-A 50mm f/2.8 Macro... then it becomes a helluva deal.

If you decide to keep the K1000 and want to replace the base plate, I have a spare parts K1000 with a good plate from circa 1981-82.
