Pentax K1000 35mm Film SLR Camera with Vivitar 35mm F/3.5 Prime Lens, Lens Cap - Fully Functional
Here we have one of the best Pentax SLR cameras ever, the K1000, complete with aVivitar 35mm F/3.5 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 fantastic 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 included Vivitar 35mm lens is perfect for general photography. The relatively fast aperture of F/3.5 is good for low-light and available light shooting, as would occur in street photography. The standard focal length of 35mm is perfect for any kind of photography from landscapes to tight portraits, general snapshots to architectural shoots. This lens is a universal crew mount (M42) lens fitted with a K mount adapter, so stop down metering and manual stop down for exposure will be necessary.
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.
