    Hi,

    I'm having a clear out to pay for some new gear and a repair to my M3. The following are all for sale:

    Pentax 35mm f3.5 m42 mount Takumar, with case.

    Pentax Super Multi Coated Takumar 50mm f1.4 m42 -- this has the yellow tint, if you google you'll find a lot of discussions, I haven't gotten round to the UV treatment, but other than that, it's good. Surprisingly sharp even wide-open.

    Pentax 50mm f2 m42 -- this def. has some marks in the lens, so I suspect dust or the beginnings of fungus. Good cosmetic condition.

    Jupiter-9 85mm f2 M42 mount - black FSU m42 mount 'portrait' lens. Good cosmetic order, focus ring slightly stiff compared to the pentaxes but perfectly useable. I find this a bit low contrast wide-open without a decent hood, but very nice stopped down a bit.

    Pentax Spotmatic IIa - this is the US model with the extra features to match the Honeywell flash. Never used it, I bought it as a job lot with a lens. I don't know if the meter works, as I don't have the right battery.

    Yashica Electro GT -- bought this and used it a few times, but I don't like the ergonomics, esp. the long travel on the shutter and the staggered under and over exposure lights. Not for me. I might still have a battery somewhere for this, will have to check.

    Leica Summitar 50mm f2 -- bought this to go with my M3 but I actually prefer an FSU lens I have. Good cosmetic condition, I can see a few specks of dust and what looks like a small mark or bubble in one of the elements [ not fungus, I assume it's been there since manufacture]. Takes good photos, but the 'look' isn't for me.
    copy of Summitar --> E39 adapter [ebay, not a Leica original, but works fine]
    E39 hood and cap which fits this adapter

    Olympus mju II - in good working order, with soft case and instruction manual. I've shot with this a lot. Fantastic image quality for an autofocus compact.

    Contax G1 with 45mm lens and hood/hood-cap -- this is NOT the green-sticker version, but is in very good working order. Has a couple of tiny marks on the top plate, but in good cosmetic condition, too. The lens is basically mint. I may be able to provide a flash with this, too.

    I can provide photos and further details of all of these on request.

    Reasonable offers accepted on all of these, I need to urgently cover the cost of my camera repair, so I'm prepared to be fairly flexible on prices [within reason!]. I'm based in London, but the kit can also be seen in Oxford if anyone wants to inspect before buying.

    I will ship internationally once paypal funds have cleared, and with the paypal fees paid by the recipient. Otherwise, cash or cheques are fine.

    Thanks!

    How about a price for the cameras you have listed for sale?

    Thanks,
