I'll give it a try tonight with my om4ti

The 35mm and 50mm are both pretty sought after by digital users as well as film. I wouldn't expect to get any single item from that list for £50.
My most recent ebay finds:
Pentax Spotmatic with ERC, original strap and Super Takumar 50/1.4 with original front cap - £7 (almost mint apart from a dent in the top plate, the lens is perfect now I've de-yellowed it).
An auction which just read "Asahi Pentax Jessops". Emailed the seller and found that it included a KX with 55/1.8 lens, so paid £26 including postage reasoning that the lens alone was worth the risk. On arrival I find the camera and lens with original crinkle-finish lens cap, also a Vivitar 75-205mm f3.8 and a Jessops-branded multi dedicated thyristor flashgun. Everything just needed a good clean, the KX is now going through a test roll.
While it doesn't really qualify as a garage sale find... A coworker came up to me last week and said, "I hear you like old cameras. You can have this, I use my phone for pictures now." Inside the case was a Canon AE-1 Program, with a 50mm 1.8 and 100-300mm zoom, both by Canon. Along with a Canon flash.
I'm definitely going to have to spread the word that I like old cameras, even further. ;-)

Voightlander with box case filters etc for $10 put it on ebay and got $290
In the past month or so I've picked up two Olympus XA's both working and a Nikkor Series E 50mm. All from thrift stores.
-Ive been looking for a good working XA for quite some time. And here i got lucky twice. One must be a more recent date, because even the seals are in good shape.
To the average person, that old XA (or XA4) looks just like any other old compact film camera (which you can't get film for any more!) So £1 or $1 at an outdoor sale is all they expect from it.
