ME Super with SMC-A 50mm 1.4

I can get an ME Super with a SMC-A 50mm 1.4 for about 100.
Is it a good deal? Both the camera and the lens show some wear, the lens is working pretty well I think and doesnt have fungus, but some spots of dust inside.
I really dont have much interest in the camera, but the lens... What do you think...

I've enjoyed my ME Super. Nice camera! Aperture priority and easy to use. If the light meter is good, it takes good pictures.

the price is alright, not a bad deal
you should check out the camera and at least try a roll to see if you like it

I really like my ME super. It is the poor man's LX. They are great little cameras.

Combined with the 50 1.4, makes a great combination.

I would expect to pay about $100 CAD for the lens, and $50 CAD for the body, so 100 Euro is about right.

Thank's. So this isn't a real bargain, it's the usual price for this camera.

With the Pentax-A 50/1.4, the price is about right...at least by U.S. standards assuming both are in very good or better condition. A real bargain would be about 1/3 to 1/2 that amount!
