[SOLD] *ist 35mm film body

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
*ist 35mm film body

Asking Price
$125 USD

Item Description
I bought this camera body a few months ago from KEH in EX+ condition. I have put only one roll through it, and it is still in the same condition as when I bought it.

This is a great little camera. It's the smallest 35mm SLR ever produced, so when paired with a compact lens it makes a very portable little package. The controls are very similar to Pentax's DSLR's, so it is a great camera for expanding to film if you have only used digital before.

WOW, not sure if yours is in as good a shape as mine but it is a sign of how bad the sellers market is right now.

I sold my ist 35mm for almost $100 more last February within a few days on this forum. I did have the box and book and was the original owner.

this was a hard camera to find new, and probably not easy to find used. It's a nice little camera.

And for those with a hankering for the MZ-S, the ist 35mm is in many ways in improved MZ-S. It is absolutely tiny and light. I actually needed the external battery grip it was so small. But the aperture is body controlled only.

Yeah, it is a great camera. I paid $225 for it just a few months ago at KEH. They are still going for about that there. It is in terrific shape, but I'm feeling that LBA itch again...
