Pentax MX with lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax MX with lens

Asking Price
90.00 USD

Item Location
Colorado (United States)

Item Description
This is a primo MX 35mm film camera. As you can see from the photos, it is almost "collector" quality. Light seals and mirror buffer have been replaced.

With 50mm f/1.7 lens, the price is $110. Shipping included to USA (extra to Canada or Mexico).

Film advance, counter, ISO/ASA setting, self-timer, and DOF preview lever work perfectly. Functionally, this camera is like new, and it is in beautiful condition.

Yes, this beauty shows some wear—she is over 35 years old, after all—a few minor marks on the bottom plate from tripod insertion, and on the prism casing, and where held for many years on the leatherette housing. No dings anywhere. These are minor, almost invisible imperfections, but I'm listing the bad along with the good. No hot shoe cover. Missing the little plastic insert on the shutter lock lever. A few light scratches on the focus screen (it's a split-prism and works perfectly). Otherwise, indistinguishable from a camera that someone has used carefully for a few months.

After I replaced the seals and mirror buffer, I ran a roll of Fujichrome through the camera, testing all the shutter speeds, from bulb to 1/1000. All 36 slides were exposed perfectly, so shutter and meter have tested like new.
