    I went to a pawn shop looking for a camera and this is what i found:
    The camera didnt have anything on it except(FE 3889156), but it said nikon, it was all metal. no ideal what style it was.
    It came with a Nikon speed light.
    Filter:
    A tiffen photar(4pt 3mm star)
    A sigma ardtromatic macrolenese
    Lens:
    Topman MC 1:2.8 f=28mm
    Omega mc 2x auto teleconverter
    sigma 80-200mm f=3.5-4

    For all of it, price was 100 dollars.

    Looks like a solid manual camera. I have a similiar camera from Canon (AE-1), they are great if you wanna learn photography from scratch.
    Can't comment on the price though, I would check Ebay first to see the real market value.

    the camera itself looked too blurry when looking through the lens' can this be cleaned or does this naturally happen?

    Probably. You should be able to tell with a close examination of it tho. Look, for example, at the mirror and the lens from both sides.

    With a camera that age, probably would be a good idea to figure in another $100 or so or whatever the price of a CLA (clean lube and adjust)is in your area.
