    Well I've just aquired a pentax ME Super off a friend with a 50mm lens and a 28-105 zoom lens..its in excellant condition and still with its instructions etc.
    I want to know, if I was to sell it what would I expect to get for it?
    The only reason I ask is that I want to set up adrkroom and this money may help to provide some cash towards it..
    Any answers gratefully recieved

    Niall,

    I presume that you have an alternative camera system.

    The shop where I work (ha ha) generally sell ME Super (w/50 lens)
    kits from $199 - $249 CDN, dependant upon condition and which 50mm
    lens it is.
    As for the 28 - 105, it depends upon "brand" name, condition and max-
    imum aperture and if it is AF or MF.

    As for places to sell, try some colleges in your area or some of your
    colleagues at work.
    Or if you have a shop (locally) that carries darkroom gear you could
    always trade your gear toward whatever you need in the darkroom area.

    Hope this helps.

    Tim,

    And all this time, I though you were such a nice guy but then
    you go and say this:

    "How many $CDN to the £?"

    Ach, ura cruel man.

    So the camera might be worth about £100 or so to a dealer? /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif Less of course to you.

    Yep! The going rate for an ME Super with 50mm f1.7 lens from most dealers, in good nick (or what they would call Exc&#43&#43) seems to be around £100. (unless you want to sell it, of course, then it's around £45-50, 'cos they can't shift 'em y'know)/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif
