Well, I always check Craigslist to see if there is any toys I want. Occasionally, I find something neat (my Pentax K2000 camera, my chipper/shredder, a bag of vintage cameras, etc). I even sold my Blazer on Craigslist and boy did that bring out the “interesting” people. Usually, its just a source of frustration.
Today is a good example. “For sale: Asahi Pentax 35mm with great lens – $125” Well could be anything, no other details or any pics. They used Asahi Pentax from the first Pentax SLR in 1957 through the K series (1980s?). So I emailed the seller. She comes back and tells me its a K1000 with a lens and proceeds to give the serial number of the lens as the model. Also she said she had it appraised at $200 so the price is firm. So I ask about the lens (focal length, maker etc) and she comes back and says she doesn’t know but it had a Nikon lens cap. I guess that appraisal didn’t come with any paper work did it?
