Load of old Pentax bodies and glass

    I have to offload some Pentax stuff on behalf of my sister, with proceeds to charity. I'm putting some filters in the charity room, but I'd like some advice on the following. If no interest, I'll just take it down to my local camera shop and get a lump sum. I have no idea if it's worth anything:-

    Pentax - ME Super c/w Pentax-A f1.7 50mm lens
    Pentax - ILX
    Pentax - M
    Kodak Pronto-LK in case

    ILX winder
    Flash bolder (big thing with handles)
    Focusing screen
    Pentax AF280T Flash unit
    Pentax eye level finder

    Pentax zoom f4 70-210mm
    Pentax-M f2.8 100mm
    Pentax-M f2.8 28mm sold
    Tamron CF Tele Macro f3.8(4) 80-210mm
    Tamron SP Teleconverter 2x
    Tamron Adaptall -> Pentax fit

    Maybe one of you guys is a dealer and can see money to be made, but life's too short to spend all day on eBay

    Regarding the bodies - the one listed as ILX? If that's a Pentax LX? Depending on its condition it's worth roughly £200 - £250 for the body and prism - the ME Super £40-£50 with the lens.

    Lenses - the Pentax M 100 F2.8 is quite a nice lens and doesn't come up for sale that often so maybe in the region of £100. The wide-angle Pentax M 28mm F2.8 £40 ish.

    As for used camera dealers Ffordes is the place to send it all.

    That's great - thanks for that input. I'll contact them and see what they can do on a commission sale
    Anyone else interested. I dropped into my local camera exchange, and if it ain't digital, no cigar. Disappointing.

    Coda II getting there slowly

    I'd take the Pentax-M f2.8 28mm for £40 please.

    If that's a firm offer, PM your details and we'll sort it out when I get back home

    could do, but they will take a while to be developed :)

    If there's enough interest, I'll take the time, but they look pretty much like camera bodies and lenses. Most of the lenses are in the original boxes, as are the SLR bodies
