OMG MINT: Spotmatic F, SMC 55mm f1.8, SMC 135mm f2.5 (more) travel kit Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
OMG MINT: Spotmatic F, SMC 55mm f1.8, SMC 135mm f2.5 (more) travel kit

Asking Price

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
More pics coming of individual items.

I've seen a lot of equipment in my day, but never anything as minty as this. If you could step into a Time Machine and go back to the mid-70s, walk into a camera store and purchase a brand new Spotmatic F kit for half price, wouldn't you do it TODAY? Well, that's your opportunity right here:

I can't bring myself to split this gorgeous kit up, so it is being sold complete (for less than the individual parts are worth).

• Genuine Pentax Travel Kit hard case with green foam interior.
• Spotmatic F (everything works like new, including metering)
• SMC Takumar 55mm f1.8 with original cap (flawless) on camera
• Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 135mm f2.5 with original front and rear caps and matching metal screw-in hood
• Original zipper pouch (this is the original part of the travel kit usually missing)
• Pentax AF160SA electronic flash (in original box)
• 49mm close-up filters set for the 55mm (+1, +2, +4) in case *not pictured
• 58mm close-up filter set for the 135mm f2.5 (+1, +2, +4) with case (*case not pictured)
• Not part of the kit, but I will include an unopened box of lomography color negative film (3 rolls of 36 exposure) 400 ISO
• Original Spotmatic F manual

I have a 1976 Pentax Price List and the prices of the Spotmatic F body and the two lenses alone would have been $600 in 1976. (With inflation, that would be the equivalent of $2272 in 2010 dollars !)

Priced to sell kit: $299 plus actual shipping, as I have another purchase to pay for (as usual... LBA is such a harsh mistress).

Will be happy to ship Worldwide to PF members with good feedback. PM me for a shipping quote to your country (serious only, please).

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Return Policy & Additional Details
7 day return policy, but I've never been less concerned about a kit being returned in my life. Buyer pays return shipping. Buying price (but not shipping) refunded.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
