PZ-1, Tokina 35-70

Asking Price

Item Location
Honolulu (United States)

Item Description
Pentax PZ-1 camera body and Tokina 35-70mm zoom lens:

PZ-1: This body works great and will most likely continue to do so long after you get tired of shooting film. This camera was at one time Pentax's top of the line body selling for about $1000.
Two notable characteristics of this camera are its glass pentaprism view finder providing big bright viewing, and its fast 1/250 second flash sync speed. If you like to use daylight fill flash this is a great camera.
This camera has one issue: the shutter blades have some very slight waviness. This should be visible in the photo. The shutter was like this when I got the camera, and I never noticed any problem with its operation. Shutter runs fine at all speeds, and exposure on film is great.

Tokina 35-70: This is a great little zoom in Pentax K mount. It works great on Pentax film and digital SLRs.
The most noteworthy characteristic of this lens is its excellent build quality. It is made of metal, not cheap feeling plastic. Overall its a durable little lens that provides a useful focal length range and great image quality.
