[SOLD] Pentax ZX-5n SLR Vintage Classic



Some do consider this a classic, so no comments as this is not a discussion area.

MZ & ZX are the same camera.

Can be used in manual mode or automatic. Comes with Pentax A SMC F Zoom 35-70mm 1:3.5 - 4.5

Quite good condition cosmetically and mechanically. Only problem that I could determine was that the flash was not operating. Everything else seems to be OK. Has brand new batteries. Made in Japan.

Manuals can be obtained from Pentax. Free for the PDF file and a nominal fee for the printed one.

These cameras have brought a lot of acclaim to Pentax. Being members of the MZ/ZX-series, they have the small size and light weight of the M- and A-series manual focus bodies, but except for metal construction and mechanical operation, these bodies have all features of the top M- and A-series cameras and more: built-in flash, built-in winder, spot and multi-pattern metering, etc. Their controls are intuitive and easy to learn and the AF system is a welcome improvement over that of the older Z-/PZ-series cameras. DOF-preview works in all operating modes.


$75 USD plus $10 shipping conus. Other areas please inquire.
Not interested in selling without the lens.

I used to have this camera and I loved it. Nothing beats the classic dials.

If you cannot afford or even find a LX, this is a great second choice.
