Superb Black Spotmatic SPII w/original S-M-C Tak 50/1.4

Asking Price
$300 USD$250

In 4 years of buying cameras, I haven't seen another black SPII kit this nice!

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
This is a rare oportunity to acquire a near mint, black Asahi Pentax SPII with the original S-M-C Takumar 50/1.4 lens and original Asahi Pentax 49mm UV filter. Also comes with original lens cap.
Camera is in superb cosmetic condition. Black finish is probably 98% like new. There are 2 scuff marks on the back caused by the ever ready case.
Camera is in superb mechanical condition. Meter works, shutter fires at all speeds and seems accurate, seals are in good condition.
I have not had camera CLA'd but if I were keeping it I would as a camera like this deserves to be in top shape.
I'm not sure if it is a problem, but the meter switch doesn't return to off after shutter fires. I'm sure a CLA would solve it.
Lens is also in superb condition, cosmetically, mechanically and optically.

If I didn't have a Honeywell version now I'd be positively hyperventilating right about now. As it is I'm drooling, lol. It's gorgeous. I can't believe you actually want to part with that!

I don't really want to part with it but I really can't use it due to my health. It seems a waste to have it sit on a shelf.

Wow, that is a lovely example.
I also have an immaculate Sp11, and like yours it has a couple of marks caused by case rubbing.
I reckon the SP 11 is one of the best Spotmatics. I've got a nice ES11 which had to go to Eric for a meter repair....My Sp11 works fine, but like you, I think mine deserves a CLA too.
You have a lovely example....the new owner should be happy, & proud of such a fine example.
Cheers, Pickles.
