Asahi Pentax w/ 5 lenses

I have an old Asahi Pentax K1000 that has been lying in a camera bag in my closet for a few years now.. money's tight so I've been thinking of possibly selling it (as well as all the lenses and what not I have for it)

I need some help figuring out what a few of the things are as well as a quote on what they cost (hoping to sell everything together, if I can)
A list of the small accessories (which you can see in the photo above)
-C-N.P.S Red R2 49mm filter
-C-N.P.S Blue 80A 49mm filter
-Kitstar Precision Optical filter (pola) 49mm
-Square Mauve filter? with hole in the center? not quite sure what this is...
-Flash filters (excuse me if thats the wrong term) Red, yellow, blue, clear & orange
-C-N.P.S Close-up No.1 49mm
-C-N.P.S Close-up No.2 49mm
-C.N.P.S Close-up No.4 49mm
-Lens shade thingys (I can't remember what these are called! haha)
You can see an individual pic of them here: ... shades.jpg
One says "Asahi Standard Lens 1:14 50mm 1:18-2 55mm" and the other one says "Asahi Takumar 1:2.8 105mm 1:4 100mm"

Now for the lenses...
-Makinon 80-200mm Zoom Lens w/ Blacks 1A 55mm filter (appears to be in good condition!)

-Asahi SMC Pentax-M 1:2 50mm lens w/ Kitstar coated 1A 49mm filter

-Asahi SMC Pentax-M 1:2.8 28mm (I believe I'm missing the lens cap, but it still has the cap for the other side...)

-Asahi Super-Takumar 1:2.8/105 lens

and the camera itself has on an Asahi Super-Takumar 1:3.5/28 lens w/ Asahi Pentax 58mm UV filter.

It's hard to tell the camera external condition based on your photos and it's impossible to tell camera mechanical condition based on any photos at all, so here is the best guess based on what I see (average condition):
camera (w/50mm lens): $130
80-200: $5
28mm 2.8: $40
28mm 3.5: $30 (not sure though)
105mm: $100

Filters are little extra. I'd throw them with the lenses as a bonus.
If you need more outcome, I'd be selling this set part by part.
If you are short on time, the whole set will be faster, but will bring you -20% total.

Again, these are the average estimates based on everything being clean. Camera wasn't used for several years, so it may need a service (not necessary). Lenses externals are scratched, but I don't know the glass condition: dust, hazy, fungus, scratches, stiffness, etc.

Good luck with selling it!

Thank you so much for putting your time into this!
I was hoping to sell it for a little more.. I'm a bit surprised with some of the prices (especially the makinon lens!!!)

I forgot to add that the slot where an external flash would go appears to not be on there anymore..?
How much would this lower the value? Would it just be better if I replaced that part?

What are your suggestions for places to go to sell everything? I'm sure a pawn shop would be giving me VERY little..
The second-hand stores around here may not know the value of the equipment (nor be interested).. Would ebay be my best bet? Or an online classified?
Also.. what is the proper term for the "lens shade thingys" :lol: and flash filters?

Sorry for all the questions... I really do appreciate your time..
You have an amazing site here!

Lens shade is either shade or more appropriate hood.
I'd be selling this stuff on eBay.
Sorry for the low makinon estimate :) It was taken out of the completed eBay listing, you can look at those yourself.

Terrific - thank you so much for all the hard work you put into this.
No worries about the makinon lens... not your fault! ;)
