  • Pentax K1000 SE Chrome

    Beautifully restored, rare Pentax K1000 SE with a fast 50mm lens - perfect set for a student or a collector. This camera is a less common version of the most popular film SLR, with easier to use split-prism focusing screen. This particular unit has just been serviced and is in perfect functional condition. Shutter fires accurately at all speeds, film advance, rewind and meter all work properly. Viewfinder and focusing screen are pristine. Light seals (including internal, around the prism) and mirror bumper were just replaced. Body is well preserved, with just a bit of brassing on the film door frame and micro-scratches on chrome panels from normal use. Lettering on the dials is bright. Fresh battery for the meter, generic leather camera case, factory manual for the camera, Pentax body cap and original Pentax camera strap are included. This camera comes with SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7 prime lens in excellent shape. Just like the camera body, this lens is higher quality and less common than the standard f/2.0 version typically offered. The lens is made in Japan. No visible scratches on the glass or fungus, aperture blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth, aperture action is snappy. No dents on the barrel, just minor paint loss consistent with age. The lens comes with a new UV filter to protect the glass, as well as both original Pentax caps. Very clean set.

    that syncs and fires properly, when used with this camera (AA batteries not included).
