PENTAX K1000 SE
Pentax K1000 SE Chrome
Classic Pentax K1000 film SLR, custom restoration, fully functional with high quality SMC Pentax 55mm f/1.8 prime lens - perfect for a student or collector. This particular camera is a desirable Special Edition version, with split-image microprism integrated in the focusing screen, making it easier to use.
Shutter, meter, film transport all work properly. Brand new seals (inside and out) and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).
Very good condition overall. One shallow dent on the back of the front cover (left of the viewfinder), minor brassing on the sides and viewfinder frame, some paint loss on the inside edges of the door frame (invisible in operation). Minor discoloration on the shutter curtain (no effect on function). Bright and sharp lettering on the shutter speed dial. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette on this camera was just professionally replaced with genuine pigskin leather cover embossed in Black Alligator pattern - very practical and sharp looking.
- SMC Pentax 55mm f/1.8 normal prime lens - high quality build, made in Japan. Glass is clean and scratch-free, no fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. The barrel of the lens shows minimal wear - just a couple of tiny dings on the front rim, and a bit of brassing on the aperture ring. Generic front cap is included.
- Sunpack Auto101 compact flash, works great (batteries not included). Genuine Asahi Pentax camera case (average condition for the age), vintage camera strap and a fresh battery.
