Best place to price an S and lenses are ebay and and ritz camera

The 135 isn't worth much.

The 35mm, depending on the model is worth a lot (3.5mm f1.8 could be $800).

Taking a quick scan of ebay, an S body sold for less than $200 (poor
condition), an S with 50mm lens sold for $385.

I'd recommend the $350 range for the S with 50mm.  

Hope this helps.

I've been offered a Nikon S with a couple of lenses (35,135)and am curious
as to its worth.It works and is in good shape. Any ideas would be greatly


p.s. To be honest, it is no M3. Don't think Wetzlar was too worried. 
(until they saw the* F*) :-)
