Vancouver Kerrisdale Camera "A" Series Collection

I was at the Kerrisdale Camera main store on 41st today and they recently got a Pentax A series collection in. The collection is on the mandatory 30 day “police check” hold, but you can still go in and reserve something. (Ask for Guy) All the stuff looked to be in pretty good condition.

The collection included:

A28/2.8
A35/2 (Unconfirmed)
A50/2 (with K1000 body)
M85/2
M or A200/4
A35-70/?? Zoom (Unconfirmed)
A1.4X-S Teleconverter
A2X-S Teleconverter
Auto Extension Tube Set K
Spotmatic with Takumar 55/2
Pentax 49mm Reverse Adaptor
A few 3rd party K mount lenses
Various Pentax Lens cases

Looks like they only ship to Canada and the US.

Not sure. Sorry I should have written everything down, I did the list by memory.

PM me if you are interested and want me to check.

Otherwise they open tomorrow at 9:30 PST and have a toll free number: 1 (866) 310-3245.

I checked out the M85 about a month ago. as I inspected it, the focusing ring suddenly got jammed. as it turned out, the lens rear internal focusing mechanism of the lens got loose and was the cause of the problem. eventually they got it repaired and have it back in perfect pristine condition.

Good to hear, I saw it last time I was there a few weeks ago. I think it was selling for $199.99.

fwiw, the focusing is smooth and better than the other 2 85s that I have.
