Mint Vintage Spotmatic Set-up - Price Drop

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Mint Vintage Spotmatic Set-up

Asking Price
60 USD

Item Location
Bronx, NY (United States)

Item Description
EDIT: Spotmatic and 50/1.4 Super-Takumar for $60.

I'm starting to clear out some of my collection. First up is a Spotmatic set-up, which includes a lot of very cool, still-working vintage items. I'd also add that everything in the collection is about as mint as I've ever seen such a camera - I don't use that term lightly. I'm not sure it was ever used.

It includes:
Pentax Spotmatic
Pentax Asahi 50mm/f1.4 w/cap
Leather camera case w/velour interior
Vivo Aluminum tripod - SOLD
Yashica Flash
Genuine Pentax 49mm filter w/case
Sekonic light meter - SOLD

So one item at a time: I can't find a scratch/dent/brassing on either the spotmatic or the 50mm, though the 50mm has a bit of yellowing (that can be cleared up with some UV light). The leather case is supple without cracks. The tripod is a very cool piece - it's a solid aluminum tripod that extends from about 12" high to about 60" (fully extended it took a 15mm to get it in the frame!), plus has a very unique feature - a push-button plunger that triggers the camera shutter with a metal cable that attaches to the camera and the tripod. I'm not sure I'd leave it completely extended with a 645D, but it holds everything up as you can see. The flash takes a while to recycle, but still fires via a cable sync. The filter is just as mint as everything else. And I have no idea how to work a light meter, so I'm not sure if the light meter works, but the red needle moves if I hold it very close to a light bulb.

Check out the pictures below... still not sure how to rotate them, but I'm working on it.

Thanks and if you have any questions please let me know.

Would you consider parting with the tripod and meter separately?

I might part with just the tripod and meter, but I'm willing to wait a week or so before splitting it up. And again, I'm open to offers for the whole thing.

If I didn't already have 3 Spotties I would certainly love to have yours, but I don't need a fourth one. The tripod is awesome though, and I always wish I had something between my Zipshot and my manfrotto.
