    It worth 5 lb, but likey will end up going for more. Is it the one going for 10 USD for CA? If so shipping will be about 10-20 USD

    Yeah, its worth it. You could also look at MTL-3 or MTL-5, they don't cost much more and have a primative light meter :drool: I bought a b200 and ended up spending more on shipping than the camera :blushing:
    You might also want to check out a yahoo group called pugw, which is a smaller group devoted entirely to praktica cameras.

    Yea, matey. I used an older Domiplan lens that came from a Praktica on another SM SLR and I was amazed at the quality of the pictures.

    Well worth the money.

    That I can, except that the shipping from Arizona to UK would annihilate the cheapness (new word? ;) ) of that camera.

    Have you watched the Ebay? Just search for Praktica there, you should find some for reasonable prices, if not outright steals. :D

    I'll check it too for you...
