Pentax K1000 35mm Film SLR Camera with SMC Pentax-M 50mm F/2 Fast Prime Lens, Lens Cap - Fully Functional
Here we have one of the best Pentax SLR cameras ever, the K1000, complete with an SMC Pentax-M 50mm F/2 fast prime lens, lens cap, and battery. This camera is fully functional and is ready to provide another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The camera is in great condition, cosmetically, and perfect condition mechanically. Everything works precisely as it should, with all knobs, lever, dials, and switches, actuating with mechanical precision. The light meter works perfectly, as does the shutter, film transport, mirror, and all controls. The film compartment, battery compartment, and mirror box are all pristine and free from damage, corrosion, and dust. The shutter speed adjustment knob has one chip taken out of it on the edge, this can be seen in the photos and does not impact functionality, however the camera is being sold at a discount due to this blemish.
The included lens is from Pentax's absolute best range of manual lenses, featuring the brand's exceptional optic coating technology, SMC (super multi coating). The fast aperture of F/2 is ideal for low-light and available light shooting, as would occur in street photography. The standard focal length of 50mm is perfect for any kind of photography from landscapes to tight portraits, general snapshots to architectural shoots.
It is in excellent condition. All glass is free of fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, and haze. The aperture ring and focus ring actuate as they should, and the aperture blades are snappy and free of oil and corrosion. The filter threads and mount are unmarred.
The Pentax K1000 is among the best models in Pentax's range of 35mm SLRs. It's extremely resilient, beautiful, and completely capable of anything a photographer could ask of it.
It also has the distinction of being one of the longest running and best-selling 35mm film SLRs ever, being in production for more than 20 years and selling over 3 million copies.
The camera will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
