Pentax K2 - AS-IS - Lowered Price

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K2 - AS-IS

Asking Price
20.00 USD

Item Location
Central Texas (United States)

Item Description
Well, it works, just not exactly how it's supposed to. When the shutter release is pressed, the mirror flips up - that's it - no shutter. BUT, if you press the depth-of-field preview button, the shutter fires! Same if you lock up the mirror.


The good news - meter works, battery compartment is clean, ASA/ISO rings turns smoothly, also the exposure +/- ring.


The rest of the bad news - no pin to 'lock' the lens in place; I don't think the hotshoe works (but it's hard to be sure 'cause of the shutter issue).


Also, I have not cleaned this guy up, so it looks worse in the photos than it could.


The Pentax SMC M 50mm f2 lens works great - clean and clear glass and aperture blades.

I am interested in both the K2 & the 50mm lens.
I would like to be 1st in line to buy the K2 if it has a split-image screen.
Thanks,

Moe, just got the camera back - unfortunately, it does NOT have a split-image focusing screen.

Howdy Chip,
Thanks for letting me know. I will now remove myself from the line.
I will pass on both the K2 and the lens.
