[SOLD] Pentax MX body for sale

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax MX body for sale

Asking Price
65USD

Item Description
Up for sale is a Pentax MX body. It is in excellent working order. And for a more than twenty years old thing, it can be described as clean. The film advance, shutter speed selector, light metering have all been tested, and are working as expected. I actually shot a few rolls of films with this camera, and everything seems fine. The light meter needs two 357/303 button cell batteries to work, and the batteries are not supplied.

A little plastic sticker is missing from the shutter lock. See the bottom picture for the detail. The sticker seems to be for cosmic purpose only. Its missing doesn't affect any functionality of the camera.

Contact me for any question you may have. Thank you!

"Sticker" = Lever

Hi qsc,
The 'sticker' to which you referred, is actually a very short lever, used for rotating the shutter button lock in an ant-clockwise direction [and back ]. Don't know how much utility will be lost without the lever.

That's what I guess it is for. It seems that the thing has no effect on utility, since I can still switch the lock on and off with relative ease. Thank you though for the note!

The camera is still available. One person inquired about the sale of the strap only, but I am reluctant to do so.

Mine was also missing. Shutter release lock works fine without it.
Eric Hendrickson replaced it when I sent him my MX body for CLA.

You can cut a black rubber piece to fit the slot, and super glue it. Worked perfectly on my previous MX
