  • Pentax K1000 Chrome - Japan

    Another excellent and rare Made-in-Japan Pentax K1000 film SLR.  
    This particular body was made in Japan (with engraving on the back, very scarce version !) and is in EXC+ condition. Just a minor brassing on the viewfinder and film door frames, small superficial scratches on the bottom - no other cosmetic defects. Shutter fires properly, film advance, rewind and meter work as they should (meter accuracy was not verified with film). Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear of dust. Light seals (including internal ones, around the prism) and mirror bumper were just replaced for years of flawless service. Fresh battery for the meter, generic body cap, factory manual (fair condition) and original Pentax camera strap are included. 

    This camera comes with original Pentax-M 55mm f/2.0 standard prime lens (made in Japan). Glass is clear, no visible scratches or fungus. Aperture blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth, aperture action is snappy. Barrel is clean and dent-free, with just a bit of brassing from normal use. The lens comes with a brand new UV filter, rubber hood and generic front and rear cap. In addition, this camera is equipped with a Vivitar Auto Thyristor 2800 flash in excellent functional and cosmetic condition. No corrosion in the battery compartment (4x AA batteries not included).
