Praktica MLT 5 M42 mount Film Camera and Rikenon 50mm F:1.7 lens -Sale Price !!!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Praktica MLT 5 M42 mount Film Camera and Rikenon 50mm F:1.7 lens

Asking Price
40.00 USD

Item Location
BEDFORD, Tx (United States)

Item Description
This East German camera was made by Pentagon in the early 80's and reminds me a lot of my K-1000.

I finally shot a roll of film though the camera and am waiting for it to be developed. Unfortunately there is a 2 week wait here on film developing.
The shutter, curtain, light meter (you have to pull the little lever on the front to get the light meter reading) and film advance all work.
I shot the Rikenon lens on my K-10D and it is sharp and renders beautifully rich colors.

Speaking of rich colors check out the stylish camera strap !!!

I will include 2 Px625 batteries with the camera.

Paypal fees and shipping included in the price.

Thanks

What a nice camera it is. I used to have the MTL3 model (almost the same) for a few years and it was very reliable. Good luck with the sale.

My first SLR was a Praktica L, manual everything. I loved it. Nice rugged cameras and good hand feel in my opinion. I agree with Chris K -- mine was reliable as well. To be honest, I think made better images back then, in my mind, than with digital. Having a period camera strap just makes it all the better. Best wishes on the sale! (and free bump to the top)

That stop-down lever/metering switch - right next to shutter release,
and operated by the same finger - makes stopped down metering
almost as fast and convenient as open aperture metering.

IMO it is an ingenious design and AFAIK unique to Praktica.

Just doing my part, but to promote the Auto Rikenon 50/1.7. I have one and it is a favorite. Oh, and there is the hippie strap too.
