[SOLD] Pentax ME CLA'ed by Eric

FWIW, $99 = $55 for the CLA, $10 for the lens, $5 for the cloth and $29 for the camera. Where else can you get this kind of a deal?

Pentax ME - recent professional CLA by Eric Hendrickson of Pentax Camera Service - $99 + shipping
Weight is 2 lb. 8 oz. Use the Shipping Calculator from USA Zip Code 63105 to estimate your shipping cost. USPS - USPS - Calculate Postage

I purchased this ME used in 2003 intending to use it as a pocket camera with a M-40mm pancake, but never got the 40. On March 6th I had a CLA/repair done by Eric Hendrickson of Pentax Camera Service (receipt included).

Eric repaired the advance, installed new light seals and mirror bumper, calibrated the mirror and shutter speeds and repaired the hot shoe. All features are fully functional and factory spec. Usual light rub marks on base plate, brassing on bottom edges of film door. Otherwise very nice.

I've decided to hang on to the MESuper that I offered here last month, so you get this fine camera with 20 more years of life in it.

You get:
  • The Pentax ME
  • An M-50 f/2.0 in nice condition with generic caps
  • Split rings for a camera strap
  • a Pentax cloth strap with attachment hardware
  • a thick Pentax Optio Microfiber lens cloth in the original packaging

No PP except crop and remove green Walgreens BW400CN processing cast

The original ME is really fun to use. It's a terrific grab shot camera.

Wow, nice deal. There are 2 MEs for sale locally at a shop, and they want $80 without a CLA

Thank you Ryan - I certainly think so. For this Forum I know people will use what they buy, so I offer good deals. My ebay policy is . . . different.

FWIW, I just checked all the functions and they are perfect. I'm going out to shoot a roll of BW400CN later today, but it will take a day or two to get images back from Walgreen's, so don't wait if you are interested!
