A definite case of ignorance hurting!

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.
