[SOLD] ME F in Excellent Condition, with freebies Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
ME F in Excellent Condition, with freebies

Asking Price

Item Description
I am selling an ME F (as most of you know, world's first autofocus 35mm SLR; like an ME Super + an early version of AF) in extremely good condition, with lots of goodies:

*** M 50/2 also in excellent condition (clean glass, snappy aperture, good costmetics), with UV filter and original front & rear caps (I can't be bothered to sell this separately so please don't ask)


*** Original manual, body cap and strap. Oh, and a pristine shutter release cable with a locking feature I forgot to photograph.

The previous owner barely used this camera. It spent most of its life in a drawer and emerged with only a very few, very faint markings. Batteries were left in the battery compartment and there was a bit of leakage, but it cleaned up quite well (see photo) and the contacts work fine.

The camera meters, focus confirmation works, with its AF35-70/2.8* (NOT included with this sale, sorry) it does autofocus, and the shutter clicks nicely at appropriate speeds for the setting. The screen is bright and clean (and may I say "WOW"--if you haven't looked through one of these classic bright viewfinders lately, they're GORGEOUS).

* N.B. As an early implementation of Autofocus, the ME F does not have a KAF mount and will not autofocus lenses other than the AF35-70/2.8. However, focus confirmation will still work with any lens.

Full res pics at ME F all included | Zooomr Photo Sharing or see below for low-res selection.
