    gpa gave me some old equipment....??

    My grandpa was going through his garage and found a couple old cameras and lenses and gave them to me. I don't know anything about them, and was wondering if anyone could tell me if they're worth anything?

    Camera bodies-
    Konica FS-1
    Konica FTA

    Lenses-
    Auto Tamron Zoom 80-250mm
    Vivitar 35mm auto wide angle
    Auto Midori Zoom 80-200mm
    Konica Hexanon AR 40mm
    Konica Hexanon AR 135mm

    Flashes-
    Vivitar zoom Thyristor 2500
    Konica X-24 auto

    All in working condition!
    Anyone?
    Thanks in advance!

    This ain't antiques road show! Just kidding, it looks like you've got a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff there, but you should keep it for yourself. If you shoot digital, this would give you a nice break from the norm and at no cost other than film/developing.

    Zooms from that era were usually not optically very good and are not worth much today. The better lenses are the Hexanon's. The Hexanon 40mm is a good and sharp lens. The value of the Hexanon 135mm will depend on its maximum aperture. Konica made a fast 135mm with f/2.5 maximum aperture, which is quite rare.
