[SOLD] Pentax ZX-L body, Like New w/battery grip

Pentax ZX-L body, like new, only 4 rolls of film through it. (previous owner told me 3 and I have put one through it). The camera truly looks and functions as brand new. I put a Tamron 28-70 on it and it functions beautifully.

I bought it to fill my desire to get back into 35mm film cameras, but I also acquired a K1000 and P30T, I like the old school stuff better so I changed my mind on this ZX-L. I would rather put this money into some glass for the other two.

I'll take what I paid: $110.00 + shipping. (body only, does not come with lens)

Or, I would partial trade for lenses. Some I am interested in are:
Pentax-M 50mm 1:1.4 and/or Pentax-A 50mm 1.4 or 1.7

I have an excellent feedback rating on eBay, ID: skid2964

Thanks!
(I can post detailed pics later if desired)

I know I'm being horribly OT here, but could you tell me the difference between the ZX-L and the ZX-30? Apart from compatibility with a remote control, I couldn't find any difference.

Pentax MZ/ZX-Series Film Bodies

faster shutter is one thing that stood out to me: 1/2000(ZX-30) vs 1/4000(ZX-L)

Ah, thanks for the link. Now I see that there are numerous differences, like DOF preview, spot metering, the full KAF mount, faster flash sync etc.

Nice! Good luck with your sale.

The ZX-L, an improved version of the ZX-7, is a very nice camera.
(The ZX-30 is an "economy" ZX-7.)

The ZX-30 also has a crippled mount like the digital bodies. The ZX-L is nice because you can use the aperture ring or you can electronically control the aperture through the body. This means that you can even use the DA 70mm and the DA 40mm on the ZX-L.

Just bought the same combo a couple of weeks ago.

It's a nice pickup for someone.
