Pentax AP and Lenses on Vancouver Craigslist

Hereís a nice old Pentax system, not sure what it has to do with the Olympics.

To me it doesn't seem overpriced, although I should point out that I'm used to seeing Canadian pricetags.
In a way I wouldn't mind buying something like it, however I just can't afford that one.

I saw that too, imho it is over-priced. In fact, most things on CL these days are ridiculous in price. People selling K200D, D40, D80 bodies for $500+ is crazy no matter the condition, its old stuff!

It's a very specific market, not something you'll find much of on CL. He'll have a tough tim selling it especially at that price. It's a bit overpriced, but everything is around here because of the olympics

I really don't know what reasonable collector pricing for bodies and lenses from that generation would be but I couldn't see paying anywhere close to that as a user.

$300-400 for the AP and standard lens would be about the average price for a working model maybe a little less or more depending on condition. The other lenses should only add $100-200 to the price. Its way overpriced and the Olympics shouldn't have anything to do with a vintage film camera price.

The seller must be a VANOC member!

The price was most likely doubled to match everything else here during the Olympics.

Iím sure most people would rather pay $1888 for this classic Pentax system than the same amount for one ticket to the 2010 Opening Ceremonies.

Either way they are both overpiced, but still nice to look at.

$1888 could buy you the DA 21, 40 and 70 and still have $440 to play with. That is after tax too

I'd call it great if I had $1888 in the first place

My "problem" with that listing (and thankfully I live 1300 miles from the seller) is I also have a K with Zebra; and that makes me want more of these

Somebody made out with a K for $91. Pentax K 35mm Camera Circa 1958 w/ Takumar Prime Lens - eBay (item 280461120305 end time Feb-14-10 20:15:56 PST)

Granted it has the 55mm f2.2 auto tak instead of the Zebra. I think the weird shipping quote scared some bidders off.
