Damn ... an ES as well ... I have been looking for a decent one.
I already have a 55mm f/1.8 though.
Unfortunately though ... I have no cash in my account though.

Hey Mechan1k, thanks for pointing out the fact that the lens may not be needed by everyone. I was including it because I know it was purchased with the camera. I've edited the listing to give the option of buying the camera without the lens.

I didn't mean it like that ... it's actually a very good lens (for what was originally a kit lens) ... the 55mm f/1.8 takes some amazing images ... I love mine for what it can do.

Curbster, you forgot to emphasize that it's a black model...as we all know, the black models take better photos

Beautiful camera...very tempting as my SP has a sticky mirror...

Here are the pictures as requested, there are no dings and I've shown any spots where the paint has worn off.
Glass is great, no haze, no fungus, aperture is dry and snappy.
Original caps are included.

That's why my black MX and KX bodies have been so reliable

Anyone mind giving a brief description of how the ES differs from other M42 Pentax bodies, etc? I'm interested but I haven't been able to piece together exactly what makes this one (and the ESII) special. Thanks!
