Seeking approximate value of camera

I have been asked by an elderly friend of my mother's, to sell a Konica Autoreflex TC Camera, with a Vivitar electronic flash model 252 and two lenses. One appears to be a Vivitar 200mm f3.5 telephoto lens. The lens on the camera reads, "auto Vivitar wide angle 33mm 1:2.8 No. 3702702. She has asked me to sell it on Ebay, since I sell things on Ebay. I know absolutely NOTHING about cameras like this. When I search for it on Ebay, I get every price, ranging from about $10.00 for the manual, $19.99 for the entire case, camera and lenses, all the way to hundreds of dollars, for what appears to be the same product. I don't want to "give" her item away, and I am having trouble determining some kind of value. Can you assist me or point me in the right direction? I sure would be grateful. Debbie email:

SOURCE: Older Vivitar 28mm Lens on New Nikon D50 Digital Camera

Bob, there are several reasons why this won't work, mainly cost

An older manual focus wide angle will work in the manual mode on a D50. The can be had very cheap on eBay and the like.

Converting one that has a Canon FD mount to a Nikon is possible, but you would need one with a Nikon mount for parts. The focal plane distances are different between Nikon and Canon. An adapter for this is not possible without adding optics to compensate

They're easy to adapt to fit on a 4/3 mount body, but the lens will be totally manual and will not automatically communicate information about which lens aperture is in use to your camera. You will also not have the ability to automatically stop down the aperture when shooting, so you'll need to focus with the aperture ring set to the widest setting (allows in most light to make focussing easier) and then turn the aperture ring down to the correct setting for actual exposure.

In all, it's a bit of a chore, but does allow you to use your lens. Optical quality will not seem as good as you remember, contrast will be lower (unless you mask the rear of the lens to suit the smaller 4/3 sensor) and the lens will have the same angle of view as a long telephoto zoom in the 160-400mm range, so almost all shots will have camera shake unless you use the image stabilisation and/or a tripod. All of that may sound off-putting, but with care and awareness of the limitations of what you propose you'll still be able to achieve very good results. I use a commercially available adapter to use many of my old OM mount lenses on my E-510 with all the same caveats and have been pleased with the results.

If you Google "Konica to 4/3" you'll find further details, but to get you started click here for a link to someone who can supply ready made adapters (I have no personal experience of the supplier), but if you or anyone you know has basic workshop skills you can make them yourself using details available from the search term I suggested.

I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do next and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my answer..

    300mm lens #37614970 what camera does it fit on.

    K/AR is a konica mount (not to be confused with Pentax K mounts) - see article

    Usually on Vivitar lenses the last 5mm of mount can be changed / interchanged. What you probably have is the univeral lens, with a Konica K/AR mount.

    Should I Repair My Konica FC-1?

    A Konica FC-1 or A3 with a 50mm lens typically sells for $75 or less on E-bay. Get an estimate from a camera repair man. If it is cheaper to buy a "new" camera, go to E-bay or Craig's list. By the way, Konica is a mid-grade camera. For the same money, you should consider a top rated Nikon or Cannon.
