[SOLD] Pentax LX + winder (CONUS)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax LX + winder

Asking Price
$400 - price drop!

Item Location
Dallas, TX

Item Description
I recently acquired this wonderful LX in a package deal with some lenses I was interested in, and want to pass it on to someone on here who will use and appreciate it. (film is fun, but I'm too hooked on digital) The camera almost looks like it just came out of the box, with one exception - there is a small chip in the viewfinder glass that is detailed in a photo below. It is in the upper left corner, and does not affect the view of the focusing screen or indicators. This is the reason I describe the camera in 'good' condition, I otherwise wouldn't hesitate to describe it as 'excellent'. I shot a roll of film on automatic shutter speed, and the metering, shutter, etc. all work great. I also tested the winder, and it advances and rewinds the film perfectly. (single and continuous modes both work very well)

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions, I will answer them to the best of my ability. It's difficult to price gear like this, since not a lot of examples come along. I've set the asking based on pricing I've seen on ebay and keh for the body & winder: if you believe that I'm way off, please feel free to make an offer, along with any corroborating evidence

Here are scans (developed and scanned at costco) of the roll I shot last night and today with this camera. The film is long ago expired Kodak Gold 400, so please look at these solely as evidence that the metering works well & the seals are good.
