How much is a Canon A 35 mm camera worth? I also have a Tamron CT Tele Macro lens 1:38 1:4/210 lens, a Tamron Matrix -2 58 mm UV-Haze 55 mm lens and a Vivitar VMWARE UV-Haze 55 mm lenns and a Vivitar Zoom thrust or 285 light meter.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The Canon Ae-1 35 mm camera (if that is the model of 'A' camera you have) is offered for about $100 to $200 or so, nowadays. Sometimes for $300-odd, if it is complete and with all accessories... but that price might be a bit bold and less likely to sell.

The Tamron CT Telephoto Macro 1:38 I cannot quote a price for, that could be several different lenses. If that were a CF lens, then it might be worth $20 to $60 or $80 at most, unless in very good condition and with all extras.

The other Tamron lens, the Matrix, sounds like info gotten off a UV filter mounted on the lens, not off the lens itself. For info on that lens, please state only info on the lens body itself, and all the info, and I may be able to figure out its worth.

The Vivitar Zoom Thyristor 285, is worth about $20 to about $60 at most. But it will sell at prices in the lower part of that range.

The camera is, in short, much the most valuable of that set of items.

The other lens is a Tamron 35-700 mm Adaptall 2 lens;also jave a Vivitar VIC UV-haze 55 mm lens. Thanks!

The Adaptall 2 is a lens adapter ring, no a lens. It's worth maybe $4.00

The Tamron 35-700... there appears to be no such lens. More information would be required to give an estimate on the value of that lens.

The Vivitar... well, the UV-haze 55 mm is a filter, a UV and Haze filter, and worth about $4.00

And the lens, again, connect be identified without more information.

The lenses can be offered, at an estimate, for $40-50 if they are fairly 'used' or old looking.

If they look newer, offer them for more like $100 or $150. Barring better identification of which lenses they are.
