[SOLD] Film Kit: Pentax Super Program Body in Good Cond.and Vivitar/Kiron 75-205 F3.8

The camera is in proper working order. Meter works. A pair of batteries will be included. With lenses that have "A" contact, the camera does Program Exposure, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority and of course Manual Exposure. The exterior of the camera looks generally excellent with only one issue. That is the previous owner engraved her name on the bottom of the camera. Also comes with a nice leather case in like new condition. One more thing, the camera has a nice split-prism focusing screen.

The Vivitar/Kiron zoom is a cost-down copy of the Kiron 70-210 f3.5 Series One zoom, according to Douglas Green in this thread Vivitar 75-205 n/ai lens - Photo.net Nikon Forum
The previous owner bought this lens new and never used it much. The lens is in mint condition and comes with original packaging.

$50 for the kit. $8 shipping via USPS priority. Worldwide shipping.

UPDATE: There is also a cover missing on the bottom, which covers contact for motor winders. I didn't mention this yesterda coz I thought I could use the cover from my MX. But as it turns out, they are not compatible. Also there might be a few dust spec inside the vivitar zoom, just behind the front element. Thanks for looking. I might not be able to reply PMs until later tonight











Thanks for looking.

Someone please buy this quick before I do. I sold a ProgramA on eBay for more than $50.

Would love pics of the Super Program. Consider this a statement of interest.

Don't think anything is missing. That cover does not exist on my SuperA and my ProgramA.

I can confirm that, btw. Nothing's missing.

It's a good deal. For my part, though, I am just starting to feel like I won't feel right till I get my primary film body serviced and back in action, so I think the month's gear budget goes there.

I suppose this is cheaper than any therapy regarding what backups are for, but I'd be OK letting this opportunity go. Before I get ideas about other places to cut the budget.

Thanks SoldBear for the info. My MX has that cover so I assumed Super Program should also have one.

Also, a thank you to everyone who expressed interest. The kit is temporarily sold.

My ME has a cover in the place this SP shows one missing, but I also use a power winder....... which fits the M series cameras.

I'd love to have caught this deal, but I guess CBA & LBA are denied this day.

Was about to PM you. You are 3rd in line. I will let you know in the unlikely event that the first two both back out.

Hate to let this camera go as it's in really nice condition.
But right now I just have way too many cameras

Still very interested in this SP

If the other buyers back out, i'd be all over this. This SP looks in fabulous condition. The sale price is also excellent.
