    Hi All

    Due to a recent family bereavement I am now the temporary guardian of a pair of Pentax medium format cameras.

    Both look in very good condition with lenses as follows:

    Pentax 67
    Pentax 67 lens Macro 1.4 : 135 mm

    Pentax 67ii
    Ashai 67 lens 1: 24 / 105

    Can anyone give advice on them with regard to value / best place to sell etc? (other than eBay)

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks guys. They need to be sold as part of the estate and my photographic skills are not honed enough to do them justice. I would like them to go to someone who will appreciate and use them as they were intended.

    There is however a nice Powershot G10 I have my eye on...

    Could you not you know practise and become 'honed enough'

    I'd prefer to keep something like that in the family if they belonged to someone close

    G1x minimum swap for either of those bodies. A G10 is only worth about 1/3 of the Pentax 67 body alone.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do with them :thumb

    Thanks guys.
    To clarify, The Pentax 67 + 67ii are not mine to keep or trade as they need to be sold as part of the estate along with a collection of other bodies/lenses
    The G10 also forms part of the collection.

    There is no formal sale planned.
    I am researching ways of selling them other than eBay and believe of a lot of people on this forum are far more experienced than myself in such matters.
