Declining health forced me to reconsider what equipment I could expect to use in the future. First off, I have not shot any film all year. I really like the P50, and the MZ-50 has some sentimental value, and the only sensible thing is to dispose of both. This means that some of the big and heavy kit has to go along with the bodies. I am open to offers on any item (on either a “posted” or “plus postage” basis), and will consider offers for bundling items together. If anyone wants to consider a swap for an *istD body, against some of this, then please talk to me. If you want photos or test shots, then just ask. Posted here first before moving on to Preloved, Gumtree, etc.

Pentax P50 Body. Excellent condition (except for some small scratches on bottom plate and on the plastic protector on the bottom of the mirror box).
Pentax MZ50 Body. Like new (except for some small scratches on bottom plate and on the bottom of the mirror box).

Pentax SMC FA f3.5-5.6/ 28-80mm. Zoom. Some internal dust.
SMC Pentax A constant f4/70-210mm Zoom. Some internal dust.
Tokina SD f3.5-4.5/28-70 Zoom KA Mount. Clean externally (and a lot of internal dust).
Tamron Adaptall-2 f3.8-5.4/60-300mm Zoom. Fitted with Pentax K adapter and an adapted Canon tripod mount. Original front and rear caps.
Bell and Howell f2.8/28, K mount. Original front cap. Cosmetically good, but with one rub mark on focus ring. Some dust.

MTO f8 500mm M42 Mirror lens in wooden fitted case with filters. Has integral tripod mount. Note that this will not fit on any Pentax DSLR due to fouling on the built-in flash housings. Original front and rear caps, lenshood, and 4 x 77mm filters.
Chinon f5.6 300mm M42. Like new. Minimal dust. Original front cap and replacement rear cap.
Pentacon f4 200mm M42. Yes, the Bokeh monster! Preset, 15 blade diaphragm. Minimal dust.
Optomax constant f4.5 80-200mm Zoom. M42. Very clean, minimal dust, smooth diaphragm. With good drawstring sac.
Optomax f3.9 75-150 Zoom. M42, much dust, filter ring has had a ding.
Pentacon f1.8/50mm M42. Looks quite good, and not a lot of dust.
Fujinon-W f3.5 35mm M42 Auto. Cosmetically good, snappy diaphragm. Much dust. But, it does have a very nice leather case. Original push-on plastic front cap.
Practicar f2.8 24mm M42 Original front and rear caps. Moderate dust.

Pentax ME II winder in very good condition. Goes very well on P50.
Vivitar x2 teleconverter in Pentax K mount (front and rear caps).
Boots x2 teleconverte M42

Cable Switch F
Vivitar “Zoom 2500 Thyristor” flash gun. This has a lever lock, and has been converted to a permanently wired PC cord. I believe the trigger voltage does not exceed 14.5 V, and I have used it for about 50-60 shots on a K20D without a problem.
1.5 Metre PC Extension lead.
10” PC Extension lead.
9” Remote cable release. Braided metal cover with lock,

Prices might help? K.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Yes, Kris, some prices might help - but who would they help?

I put a price on something - now do I price it posted or post extra?
I name a price on an item, and someone who would really like it says that is too much.
Someone makes me an offer, and I say not enough.
What is the difference? I still have the item and the other guy does not.

OK, so I listed a lot of stuff. IF someone is interested, they know what it is worth to them, in their hands, and they can make an offer.
I know how much I would take for it.
The figures may be the same - but there is still the question of postage.

Example:
The MTO Mirror lens.
I have a good idea what this is worth, but this could be as much as the postage.
Maybe a courier could be cheaper, but now I have to find the time to start phoning round, or rooting through the internet, and the hassle may not be worth it. Equally, it maybe someone who is only an hour away, who can make an offer based on meeting in the middle and actually handling the lens and handing over cash. Like you, I say where I am. For me, the hassle of meeting someone is actually a lot less than that of doing the packing and getting a parcel to the post office counter.

And, I still have some options left to me - it is just that I offered the stuff here first (I mean, it is not like a £500 lens or similar, where I have to get top price).

So, for me, "open to offers" means exactly that.

Thank you for proving my point, and in such a hilarious manner as well.
