Breaking it up into sensible packages is the way to go. Keep the 28 and the
finder together. The LTM adapter...mmm, I dunno. Frankly I'd keep it as they
are worth more than you sell them for and the next time you buy a LTM lens
you'll curse yourself for having sold it. With butt ugly stuff I tend to
throw it in as an extra with a big item, but it might be worth trying to
sell the meter separately first (who wants a pretty M3 with a scuzzy

So I'd put the lots as follows

- -- M
- -- Kobalux + finder
- -- Summaron
- -- M meter

and keep the adapter.

Also I definitely recommend putting a ludicrous price in the 'buy this item
now' category (also known as the 'sucker tag').
