Perhaps some lens owner who regrets throwing out the box will be in the market.

In a parallel universe, members on PentaxBoxTalk are hotly debating the virtues of box dimensions ("Should I go with a larger box, or is the original one okay?"); the sharpness of corners on new boxes vs dented old ones; the joy of vintage boxes; fancy lens boxes that control minds; and the fonts and typefaces. Oh, don't forget the upcoming Box-o-kina 2019.

Presumable there is now a new pastime designated Boxophily ? Collectors are, of course, boxophiliacs.

? Excellent+++ ? Pentax MX 35mm Black Body Only SLR Film Camera from Japan #285 | eBay

Typical Japanese listing...Excellent+++ (only 3 plusses, must be pretty bad)

Scratches on body, haze in viewfinder, what's left of the mirror foam is stuck to the focusing screen...

Those aren't all plusses, two of them are tilted X's.

Thus it really is: "Excellent+XX" where the X's are defects and scratches.

"Hi I have for sale my Contax T3 in black. Just gave up all of a sudden. Multiple situations like clicking the shutter button causes the lens to retract in and out and the shutter will no longer fire. Lens covers will get stuck as well. Optics are clean. Body is dinged up from years of use. Good for parts or repair if you’re technically inclined.

$600 firm"
