I guess we'll find out soon about the little lens, if they ever get to shipping my lot! As for the 300MM being a Praktica lens, I don't think so. I found that 300MM lens mentioned as having Nikon, M42, K, Y/C and Minolta mounts, but that's all I can find. No Praktica. Doesn't look like it's K mount, unfortunately, because I have a K-mount camera and would have been thrilled, so I figure it's got to be either a Minolta or a Yashica.The other lenses in the lot are Yashica and Minolta I think so it makes sense that it's one or the other.
I'm a little nervous though because usually they ship right out after payment and this time Goodwill is dragging their heels a bit. Could be it's just that store, but the last time they did this I never got what I bought due to some clerical error. They did refund me, but it made me mad because it was something I really wanted at the time. Since that other auction had cameras and batteries that likely matched the lenses in mine it's got me going "Hmmm..." that they've not shipped two days after payment.
On a more positive note my Spottie II is on it's way. It should be here on Tuesday. Can't hardly wait to debox it and check it out. I do hope it's in decent shape and that it works. It sure would be nice to be able to use it, not just sit it up on the shelf until I have a spare $100 to send it in to get it fixed up properly. Probably will eventually anyway, but I really can't right now. I'm thinking of selling my SPI for parts maybe if the SP2 works. I may be getting a K1000 in digital imaging job swap soon here so I guess I won't really need that SPI if I do. I'm not giving it up though until I know I have two working Pentax bodies.
