Pentax ME Super 35mm Film SLR Camera with SMC Pentax M 50mm F/2 Lens - Fully Functional with Batteries
Here we have a Pentax 35mm film SLR, the ME Super, complete with an SMC Pentax-M 50mm F/2 fast prime lens. It is being sold at a discount due to slightly sticky focusing ring on the lens, and etchings on the bottom of the camera body. Other than these issues, the camera and lens are in perfect functional condition.
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 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 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 good condition. All glass is free of fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, and haze. The aperture ring actuate as it should, and the aperture blades are snappy and free of oil and corrosion. The filter threads and mount are unmarred.
