Mentioned on PentaxForums, but oddly no mention here. Some very interesting stuff available!!! I did briefly consider not telling you lot, especially Mike , but hey I'm a nice guy

http://www.specialauctionservices.com/viewProducts.php?cat_id=111&h_id=5&page=1

Pages 1 to 5 is mostly Pentax gear. Some gems hidden in there!!! 85mm f1.9, 35mm f2, 50mm macro, 100mm macro, etc etc.

The majority of the lenses are Takumars, but there are some M and A series too.

Just be aware there is mention on PentaxForums that this website set off some virus / malware alerts for some people. I went on to the website and got a Malware message from AntiVir on my computer. You may just want to make sure you've got adequate protection before clicking the link.

Their estimates seem to be a bit on the high side to me.

And don't forget to add the buyers premium - 15% + VAT to the hammer price and if you bid online there will be another 3% + VAT so you could end up paying 17.625% or 21.15% more.

Apparently it's all from one chap's collection, and many of them seem to include cases, caps and boxes. It seems safe to assume most of them are in pretty good condition, hence the prices. I don't know where they got their estimates from, most seem high but a few are low. One way of looking at it is that a high estimate might put people off and keep the final price low

How on earth did they get all that stuff? Raid MikeP's garage?

Maybe a bit cynical but I wonder how many of the items will end up on eBay or similar after the auction.

Alfiemoon I'm pretty sure that given the crazy prices Pentax stuff is going for ebay a lot of this stuff will end up there.

Ebay is great for people who aren't inclined to search around. I am constantly finding items in used camera shops going for much less than what they routinely fetch on ebay. If I could be bothered (and I can't) I would be buying it up and re-selling it myself. Some people here already do that (and there's nothing wrong with doing that by the way, that's the capitalist society we live in. Plus it's quite good fun when you sell something for a profit

Tim,
maybe I`ve been buying from the wrong people as it seems that 99% of the stuff I`ve bought off eBay have been of "Local Market" quality.

Nothing wrong with a Capitalist Society,afteral we all have Bank Accounts,it`s the "Ripp Off" Merchants on eBay that bug me...but hey,that`s another story and another thread on another forum.
