PENTAX K1000 SE
Pentax K1000 SE Chrome / Brown leather
Here is one for uncompromising collector. Highly desirable, scarce Pentax K1000 SE in original Brown leather, with hardly any signs of use. This camera is superior to a regular edition K1000, with a better quality focusing screen. As close to mint as you can get - just a tiny bit of brassing around the corners of the film door, no dents or scratches on other surfaces. Shutter fires perfectly at all speeds, film advance, rewind and meter all work properly (meter accuracy was not verified). Viewfinder and focusing screen are absolutely pristine, not a spec of dust. Light seals and mirror bumper were just replaced with fresh foam for years of flawless service. The camera is equipped with SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/2.0 standard prime lens (Made in Japan) in equally outstanding condition. No visible scratches or fungus, aperture blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth, aperture action is snappy. Barrel is clean and scratch free. The lens comes with an ultra-rare genuine Asahi Pentax UV filter and lens hood, as well as the original Pentax rubber front cap. Even the strap that comes with this camera is rare - genuine Pentax camera strap in dark grey, bundled only with the SE version of the camera. If you were holding out for a perfect K1000 - jump on this one - you will not find one cleaner. Just a peach of a classic manual SLR, worth every penny of the asking price.
