Hello -

Husband not happy. Wife buy new fancy camera (D90). Husband want sting taken out of purchase. Wife try selling old camera and lenses. Wife very sad but wife make choice.

Ok I know i won't get much for any one or more pieces but every bit helps.

Anyone know what a Canon A-1 would be worth in I'd say very good condition (was tuned up just before I stopped using it, but that was about 10 years ago) along with original case although case doesn't look all that well as the following lenses (either all together w/ camera or separately)?:

  • Canon FD 50mm 1:1.8 made in Japan (excellent condition)

  • Canon 100-200mm zoom lens FD 1:5.6 S.C. in I'm assuming excellent condition and has both caps and original leather or leather-looking cylindrical case w/ strap

  • Cimko lens which reads: compact MC 1:3.5-4.5 28-50mm

I just need some sort of an idea - I've looked on ebay and CL and I have an idea about the camera body (maybe $75?) and the Cimko lens (next to nothing) but stuck on the Canon lenses - especially the one that's Japanese which may or may not make a difference.

Thank you very much!
