Bought a fully functional F58 with broken shoe but otherwise in suberb condition for slightly under $100. Cost about $29 to replace the shoe.

Won another heap of junk here on ebay.

Paid £22.20. It looked like buried in that jumble was a small Minolta prime and perhaps a couple of Pentax lenses.

Well we collected and I have had an initial look through. The Minolta 50/1.7 has a sticky iris but I should be able to get more than my money back on it. They go for lots here in the UK. But the pentax lenses turned out to be a 135/3.5 and a 50/1.4 Both SMC M42 and in excellent condition. Wow... Nice clean profit there.

Some minor bits that should make a few bob but most of the cameras and the video cameras I fear I will have to dump as too much bulk and too little value.
A900, Min 24-105, 35-105, Samyang 14/2.8, 35/1.4, Sig 70/2.8 Macro, ISCO Ultra 125/2, Tam 180/3.5 Macro, Sig 400/5.6 TeleMacro

on craigslist this week i found a leica r8 with 5 lenses for $500 (180mm 2.8, 28mm 2.8, 50mm f2 ROM, 28-70mm ROM, and an L39 35mm f2.8). the sad part of this story is that the person refuses to answer their phone, and has no email to contact them at

i lost the craigslist lottery there

My god.

I have a cousin in Windsor. I'd a bought them both too if I had seen it. Thanks for sharing... but that one really does hurt! (especially since I am actively looking for a Mino 300 2.8 HS in Canada.)

Well, it didn't take long (just some 3-4 hours from when the items were sold) and the buyer put them back on Kijiji with the correct prices this time:)

The 300mm is 2000CAD+tax and is not the HS version (plus the guy(s) is in Toronto area).

Crap... a DEALER no less. I would have been SO much happier if it was at least just a regular bloke like us.

Managed to pick up a SAL50 F1.4 over the weekend of £140 delivered. Haven't had a chance to test it yet but it looks in great condition, so pretty happy.

Is that the one from Gumtree that he offered to sell to me for £130.00?

No, I got it through the classifieds on Talk Photography. It could have been advertised on Gumtree as well, but I doubt it, as asking price for mine was £140, rather than £130.

Yes, it's the same one @ £140.00, but he agreed to a £130.00 delivered price and never completed the transaction and I note it's now been withdrawn from Gumtree, so well done for scoring a heck of a deal.

Thanks, and sorry you missed out - a little naughty after you'd agreed a deal...
