Pentax ME Super 35mm Film SLR Camera with SMC Pentax M 40-80mm Zoom Lens - Fully Functional with Cap and Batteries
Here we have a Pentax 35mm film SLR, the ME Super, complete with an Pentax SMC Pentax-M Zoom 40-80mm F/2.8-4 macro focusing zoom lens, lens cap, and batteries.
The Pentax ME Super is one of the best models in Pentax's range of 35mm SLRs. Following in the footsteps of the original ME, the ME Super is highly upgraded, and benefits from inclusion of a full Manual mode in addition to the aperture priority auto exposure so renowned in the ME. It's extremely compact, beautiful, and completely capable of anything a photographer could ask of it.
The camera itself is in very good condition with minor signs of use and is fully functional. All buttons and switches actuate as they should. The pentaprism is very clean, as are the battery and film compartments, and mirror-box. The shutter is in perfect condition and all speeds are accurate. The metering system and autoexposure system work perfectly.
This included lens is in very good condition both cosmetically and mechanically. There is a minor ding to the filter threads that makes threading filters on a bit tricky, but the lens will ship with a filter threaded to demonstrate that the threads are not damaged beyond reason.
The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, scratches, and cleaning marks. The aperture blades are free of oil and actuate perfectly. The focus ring spins nicely, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision. The zoom ring rotates beautifully and the action is smooth and nice. The macro focusing mode works as it should.
This zoom lens offers incredible sharpness when stopped down, and produces amazing bokeh and subject isolation when shot wide open. The fast aperture allows for excellent low-light capability, and the lens is a master at available-light portraiture.
