Pentax K1000 SE Chrome / Brown leather
Highly desirable, scarce Pentax K1000 SE in original Brown leather and excellent shape. This SLR is superior to a regular edition K1000, with a higher quality split-prism focusing screen. The camera was obviously well-cared for and shows minimal signs of use: there is a just a small amount of brassing on the sides of of the film door and viewfinder frame, no dents or major scratches on other surfaces, bright lettering on the dials. Shutter fires perfectly at all speeds, film advance, rewind and meter all work properly (meter accuracy was not verified with film). Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clean. Light seals and mirror bumper were just replaced with fresh foam for years of flawless service ($25 value). The camera is equipped with SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/2.0 normal prime lens in excellent condition. The lens is made in Japan. No visible scratches on the glass or fungus, aperture blades are free from oil. Small amount of internal dust, which is normal and will not affect your photos. Focusing is smooth, aperture action is snappy. Barrel is clean and scratch free, with just a tiny amount of age-appropriate brassing on the aperture ring and front rim. The lens comes with a original Asahi Pentax front cap and a full compliment of Vivitar filters for all your creative needs: Skylight, 81C, Polarizer, Soft and Cross Field. A wide colorful vintage strap for the camera, fresh battery for the meter, original Asahi Pentax leatherette camera case (in fair shape but functional) are included.
