[SOLD] PZ-1 SE; Pentax-A 50mm f/1.7 lens and 50mm f/2; K1000 SE (Worldwide)

Here's some nice goodies I just don't use enough.

PZ-1 SE (75th anniversary special edition) - $150SOLD
A 50/1.7 - $55SOLD
A 50/2 - $25SOLD
K1000 SE - $5 (Meter not working)

Shipping in CONUS $6.95 each, or $9.95 for any two. International shipping available, please ask about your country.

The PZ-1 is a great film camera, arguably the best Pentax ever made (well, the MZ-S and PZ-1P are in the conversation as well) with two dials, fast AF, super high top shutter speed (1/8000) and lots of other features I never knew enough to use. Hyper-Program and Hyper-Manual modes are both pretty neat to use, very similar to the handling of the Pentax DSLRs especially the K10 and K20. It can use all Pentax lenses, including controlling aperture from the body for DA lenses, and fully manual ones like the K and M series. More info here:Z-1 / PZ-1

The 75th anniversary edition was made only in 1994 and is pretty rare (Bojidar Dimitrov lists its availability as "once in a lifetime"). The only differences from the regular PZ-1 are cosmetics and the quartz date back, which I have never used. The silver on the top looks especially cool with a silver FA limited, as shown (lens not included) but has rubbed off in several places, as shown as well. Otherwise the camera is in perfect working order. Included is the box and original manual and cheatsheet. I just don't use it much, preferring smaller film bodies, so it should go to someone who will give it a work out now and then.

Both of the A 50mm lenses are in good condition. They show only extremely minor signs of age and use, with clear glass free of fungus, haze and scratches. Focus rings turn smoothly, aperture rings and "A" settings work well. These are slightly discounted as caps are not included, unfortunately.


50/2: (for more pictures see below on the K1000 SE)

The K1000 SE is a little beat up, but mechanically works fine. The meter doesn't budge even with a new battery, hence the low price. Since these K1000s have maintained an oddly high value, it would probably sell for more than the cost of a repair, making it worth fixing; but I will leave it to the value shopper to decide. :-) I will throw in a magic lantern K1000 book for $2 extra, to cover any additional shipping weight.

I will give a full refund for anything found to be not as described. I have tried to price fairly going off past eBay sales, but the PZ-1 SE is impossible, so just listing what I paid for it not that long ago. If you want to, feel free to make me an offer. Any questions, just ask!

Thanks for looking, Nick

ps I still have a Rikenon XR zoom available here: No added shipping if you want that too!

Nice camera. I managed to find a PZ-1 SE once in my lifetime too! I really like the silver finish as well.

Thanks samski! Only the K1000 SE left, with some action but nothing definite. It hurt a little to box up the PZ-1....
