[SOLD] Pentax SP1000 with 55mm

I have a very nice looking Pentax SP1000 with 55mm f2 lens. This is a clean camera, and the viewfinder is basically free of dust. The meter funtions as well.

I would keep it for myself, but there is one issue I have with camera. There is a piece of foam behind the focussing screen that's intruding the view through the viewfinder. It comes in a ways from the corner. I just can't stand something like that.

The camera would be great if not for this. I would love to open up the top myself and simply remove foam, but I don't have the tools. Someone with proper tools could clear this up in no time.

Also with this, I'll include a 58mm f2 Helios lens. The lens has oily aperture blades however. It stops down, but is fairly hesitant. The oil needs to be wiped off the blades, but again, I don't have the tools to open this up.

$50 for all this.

If the Helios is a preset lens, oil on the blades is normal and acceptable. If they're slow, they just might need a little workout.

After working the aperture agressively a couple times, it becomes a lot more responsive.
