ZX-5 (CLA'd and repaired) with FA 28-70 f4 AL Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
ZX-5 (CLA'd and repaired) with FA 28-70 f4 AL

Asking Price
$100 USD

Item Location
Colorado (United States)

Item Description
The camera and lens are both in excellent condition and are working fine.

This camera has had a recent CLA and had the mirror motor and flash spring repaired. Both of these are common problems with the ZX/MZ line of cameras. If you get one that hasn't had the mirror motor replaced, it is probably just a matter of time until the plastic gear on it breaks. The replacement mirror motor has a metal gear, so should last a long time.

The FA 28-70 lens with the constant f4 max aperture was an ugprade over the kit lens of the time and is well thought of.

I am the original and only owner of the camera. I bought it new in 1997. My original FA 28-70 lens broke and I bought this one from someone else here on the Pentax forum.

Includes original manual; front, rear, and body caps; and the original Pentax ZX-5 strap.

$100 plus $15 for shipping and PP fees. Willing to ship to US (Priority Mail) or Canada (First Class) for that price. Will consider shipping elsewhere, but it will cost more.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
