The light meter works perfectly.

The included lens has a focal length of 50mm, which is considered the standard of photography. This makes it an ideal setup for almost every kind of general purpose photography, including landscape, snapshots, action, family photos, portraits, architectural shooting, and street photography.

The aperture blades are snappy and oil free, and the glass elements are free of any blemishes, balsam separation, cleaning marks, and fungus.

Additionally of note is the fact that this lens uses the popular K-mount lens system, meaning that many lenses from various makers can be natively mounted to the machine. These include offerings from Pentax, who made some of the best lenses of the day.
