[SOLD] Pentax MZ-3 AutoFocus Film SLR Camera with AA Battery Pack FG and Cable Releas

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax MZ-3 AutoFocus Film SLR Camera with AA Battery Pack FG and Cable Release F

Asking Price
220USD $200USD

Item Description
This is classic yet modern auto focus film camera by Pentax. The MZ-3 is probably the best combination of manual and auto film camera. It looks like a classic manual camera, while it got many useful features for an auto focus camera. This camera is very rare and hard to find, and a much sort after one due to its classic look and easy to use. This camera is a great match to your FA Limited lenses too

Selling the camera because I don't use it much now, use manual cameras (still have MX/ME/ME Super/ and etc.) more often.

Although it looks and works almost exactly like the MZ-5n (ZX-5n), it actually has the following improvement over the MZ-5n (ZX-5n) (Source from Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page):
1. Faster max shutter speed (1/4000s vs 1/2000s)
2. Faster AF
3. Better battery life
4. Improved mirror box
5. Probably some other hidden improvement too.

Other than some minor marks on the top right grip (as marked in circle on the 2nd photo, the camera looks mint, and works like new. It's very clean inside and out, viewfinder is clean and clear, only a couple of very tiny dust which should be easy to clean. Film compartment is as clean as new. Pop up flash pops up and stays (not like some other MZ series cameras which have this pop up flash problem). I've shot some rolls of color film through it, results come out great.

The camera comes w/ a body cap, an original Pentax shoulder strap, a brand new FG Battery Pack in box w/ manual, a Cable Release F in mint condition w/ box and manual, and two CR2 batteries (probably dead by now, but you can use them as references so you'd know what batteries you need to buy).

Package contents:
1. MZ-3 camera w/ body cap
2. Pentax Shoulder Strap
3. Battery Pack FG, new in box w/ manual
4. Cable Release F, mint in box w/ manual
5. 2x USED CR2 batteries (probably need to be changed)

Lovely camera, Frank. I'd jump on it but I love my MZ-5n well enough already. :/
