    So I was driving down a local road to avoid traffic to head to the gym. I find a tiny sign. "FLEA MARKET 9:00am-5:00pm" I pass by the turn, and I do a double-take. I U-turn and decided what the heck. I got $5 in my pocket. I can find a dvd to keep me entertained for the night. I look around and find a Lowepro bag. I knew they made camera bags, so i took a look inside, found buncha stuff and said
    Me:Hey, how much for the bag and everything in it.
    Old lady:$20 bucks
    Me:I only have $5
    Old lady:Sold
    Since I'm a beginner in digital photography, the world of film photography is also news to me. Hopefully you guys can tell me the worth of everything! Thanks

    The bag I found

    Well, without doubt, it's a hell of a deal. The question is, do you have a Pentax body to attach them to?

    Every one of those lenses is worth more than what you paid for the whole shebang. I would LOVE to find something like that ! I have the SMC version of the 200mm f4, and it is a nice lens. Would love to have that 35 f2 !

    Don't sell them--buy some $17 eBay M42 to EOS adapters and USE them on your Canon d-slr. I personally own the 135mm f/3.5 and the 200mm f/4 Super-Takumars, just like the ones shown, and both of those are razor-sharp lenses that deliver excellent image quality on my Canon bodies.

    Here's an adapter for $11.95 and $3.52 shipping, from a vendor where I purchased most all of my adapters. eBay.ph: Canon EOS Lens to Pentax PX Screw M42 Adapter NEW (item 370240790641 end time Nov 04, 2009 02:07:42 PHT)

    And, the lenses are actually quite a bit smaller and more compact than they appear in these photos!
