Item Description
Alright. Now that my LX finally sold (you heathens not appreciating tartan!), my absolute favourite Pentax is next.
The one, the only, the lovely K2. This really is an almost perfect camera. If Nikon made something like this they would call it something lame like FE, which is short for flee. Or flea. Is that what you want people to think of you?
But Pentax - what a name! K2. Just say it with me. K2. What is that? Some kind of code for a massive mountain, that towers over others? Yep. The Pentax K2 is a mountain of a camera. The sort of machine that when you whip it out (steady on there chaps!), people say - stand back! He's got a camera!

What does this K2 bring to the table? It is gorgeous black enamel, with just the right amount of surface edge brassing to let you know it's seen stuff. It's been used. It's worthy. But no dents or gouges that tell you the previous owner was a bumbling fool with hands of clay. (I may be a bumbling fool but at least I don't drop cameras. Ok, not this one).
Meter is perfect. Shutter times correctly according to results on film where it matters, dammit. Super responsive action. Wind on is smooth and SHORT!! Not long like that miserable MX I pawned off a while back. Also the shutter speed dial is perfectly weighted - again not like that knuckle buster on the MX.

The ISO scale/dial is easy to set. No issues here. Honestly I think people reporting problems have not read the manual. You need to make sure the Exposure comp is on zero i.e not set, then it adjusts easily. If you have exp comp set - even a little bit - it will not adjust. That is how Pentax designed it people.

Lenses are excellent - no issues with the 40 2.8 or 28 2.8. Selling this goodness as a set as, well, it deserves it and I'm tired of all these ads I'm placing...
Pics of the camera, and a few taken with the 40mm.

Oh yeah - $200 +$15.50 USPS medium box flat rate priority mail. For the awesome K2, 40 2.8, 28 2.8.
The quick release strap thingies are NOT included.
