Pentax KX (film) body

Pentax KX Camera Body: REDUCED $40 + $10 shipping via USPS Priority (mainland US only)

KX is one of the classic and most robust film cameras by Pentax. Full metal, build like a tank. This it's one of the highest recommended (9.88 on these forums) and most reliable manual film cameras. Only requires batteries for the light meter. Has fast SPD (silicon photo diode) light-meter, contrary to the slow CdS meter of most contemprary competitors (including K1000 and KM). Has Depth-of-field-preview and Mirror-Lock-Up (and Self-timer). Shows aperture in view finder.

Camera appears to be in good working condition, though lots of scratches and some brassing. No dings or dents though. Light meter works (has fresh batteries). Shutter appears to be working, but I have not tested the camera with actual film. If there are any problems with the camera I will take it back (see returns)

Pentax A 50mm F1.7: SOLD $50 + $10 shipping via USPS Priority (mainland US only)

Lens is in good clean condition EXCEPT a front barrel dent. A filter or hood can be screwed in, but it takes a littlle work to get it aligned right. Once aligned, the filter/hood goes on fairly easily. Other than that, the outside of the lens looks excellent. Focus is smooth. Aperture ring moves well (as typical for this lens not as smooth as the older M or K lenses, but better than some other A lenses I have had). The glas looks clean, and little or no dust. Aperture blades are clean, with no oil. The A setting works well on my digital cameras. Comes with generic front and rear caps.

If sold together I will will take $20 off ($10 price, and $10 off shipping)l

Returns: Will accept returns within 14 days of receipt. Buyer pays return shipping.

Will consider international shipping, but no returns.
