Pentax MX 35mm Film SLR Camera with Two Lens Set 50mm Prime and Zoom - Fully Functional with Batteries
Here we have one of the best Pentax SLR cameras ever, the MX, complete with a two lens set including a Sears 50mm F/2 fast prime and Sigma 35-105mm zoom.
The Pentax MX is one of the best models in Pentax's range of 35mm SLRs. It is the flagship Pentax camera from its era, and is a fully mechanical professional machine. Only the light meter needs batteries to operate, and the camera is otherwise able to perform fully without any electrical power at all. It's extremely compact, beautiful, and completely capable of anything a photographer could ask of it.
The camera itself is in great condition 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 light meter works perfectly and the shutter speeds are accurate.
The included lenses are in excellent condition and fully functional. The 50mm prime with its 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.
The Sigma zoom is a versatile zoom from 35-105mm. This covers the full range of wide to portrait focal lengths, making it an excellent do-it-all lens.
With both lenses, 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. Filter threads and lens mount are pristine.
