    What do you mean by mouldy?

    Maybe I buy for taking slides, if it still works and can take clear pics.

    mouldy means the lens has its own ecosystem.
    since i'm not hardcore film guy, i'll start taking slides with a cheap camera. why not. and if i like it, i will buy an F5.

    for the X-300,
    beware !
    it's well know as the "mirror lock" cam,
    but still it's useable


    for the lens, I'm not sure, but since they are gonner, ya might as well take this chance to "open" them up to take a look ?
    who knows ? maybe ya can clean them up yaself !?
    long as the finder is still viewerable, it's useable!

    (oke, I own a x-300, looks old, cleaned the 50/1.7 myself... it's still rocking ... haha but who knows when will be that day the mirror locks up again ? yesh it looked up on me before, but give it a wack anyway )

    have fun

    Anyone can help give me neutral estimate on what is a fair price to sell these items at? Interested parties have asked me for a price but i frankly have no idea how much to ask..
