Pentax K2 Black
Rare black-body Pentax K2 film SLR. Big brother to the popular K1000, this was Pentax flagship camera in 1975 featuring revolutionary K-mount for lenses. Aperture priority mode, metal shutter, exposure compensation, shutter speed indication in the viewfinder, mirror lock up, battery check and self-timer are all features missing in K1000. Three lens bundle in excellent functional condition. If you are looking for a camera for your photography class - you will not find one sharper looking, and your instructor will want to buy it from you :) PS. Retail price for this camera in 1975 was $300 (body only) - twice as much as K1000 and equivalent to ~$1,500 today!
Shutter, self-timer and film transport work properly. Meter responds to light, lens aperture and shutter speed settings, and appears dead-on (accuracy was not verified with film). Film speed dial is tight (as is typical for this model) but smooth. Light seals (including internal around the prism) and mirror guard have been replaced.
Very good. No dents or major blemishes. Some brassing around the strap lugs and bottom, minor rust on the edge of the film door. Bright and sharp lettering on the shutter speed dial. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clean and bright with just a couple of tiny specs of dust. Minor prism desilvering on the sides (will have no effect on shooting). Original leatherette is in excellent shape.
- SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/2.0 normal prime lens. EXC condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus is noticeable. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows average wear, consistent with normal use, no dents. The lens comes with new generic front cap and UV filter.
- FREE BONUS: Tokina 80-200 f/4 telephoto zoom lens with both caps and leather bag. Focal 2x teleconverter, with both caps in leatherette case. Both lenses are in excellent cosmetic condition, untested.
- Vintage camera strap, Pentax body cap and a set of fresh batteries for the camera.
