[SOLD] Pentax Film LX & MX & Glass

**Photos will be uploaded once I get home.

This is all OBO. Make me an offer.

$309 - Pentax LX - No introduction needed for this guy. The outside is a bit worn and the leather may need replacing or fixing soon. Paint chips on the corners and a small dent on the back of the back cover. The foam on the inside might need replacement soon so I'd get it serviced by Eric soon although it still works fine. Meter has been tested and calibrated and the inside was cleaned here in Japan by a former Pentax tech. It sounds a lot worst then it actually is. This LX is nice.

$103 - Pentax MX - Eric did a CLA on this in '08. he replaced the seals and mirror foam, calibrated the shutter and meter, fixed the self-timer and flash circuit. But everything inside is perfect and it works perfectly. Minor dings and scrapes but nothing bad. Includes manual. I purchased this from these forums from ChipB.

$103 - Cosina 55mm f/1.2 - Ok, so right now, this lens is sitting here, with the aperture lever out of the lens. It is also filed down as to work with EOS cameras. So as of right now, this lens will only work wide open. I will get home today and try to super glue or fix the spring or both so it can be stopped down. At this price, this is a bargin buy. Grab it and fix it yourself if ya want. I'll give you all the peices. Glass is clean, no problems there.

$40 - SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7 - This lens had its aperture lever filed down as to work with the EOS cameras. So you have to use stop-down-metering. But the lens focuses smoothly, the aperture ring detents properly, the diaphram blades are clean, oil-free and are "snappy". Glass is perfect with minor dust but doesn't effect IQ. This came with ChipB's MX and they are both perfect.

* - Takumar (Bayonet) 135mm f/2.5 - This lens is infamous for tricking people who think they are buying the multi-coated version. This isn't multi-coated and it shows. If you purchase anything, I'll give this to you for free

** - All items - $410 - And I'll cover shipping & throw in a toy camera I have. (Holga 120CFN with 35mm adapter)

Note: I accept PayPal only and I ship USPS. I live in Japan but near a base so I can ship rather cheaply via my on-base post office. I'll ship Priority so add $5 for shipping unless you purchase all.

It is still for sale. Notice that this is the price for the Cosina as is. If I fix it, the price will jump up to what they actually sell at so buying it now would be a great deal.
Also, when you purchase it, I will be sending you all the parts. You could probably get a local shop to fix it way cheaper then paying for a regular one. Also, I love this quote:

Photos coming soon. Sorry, its been a long day at work.

Actually, just for fun, I'll drop the price of the Buy It All option to $410.
