[SOLD] [US] Asahi Pentax Right Angle Finder

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Asahi Pentax Right Angle Finder

Asking Price
$25 shipped

Item Location
Santa Fe, NM

Item Description
For sale is an Asahi Pentax Right Angle Finder. This finder rotates 360 degrees to allow you to shoot from any orientation. The rotation has click-stops at every 90 degree turn. This finder will mount on some older Pentax SLRs (works on both my Yashica TL Electro X and the Spotmatic I'm selling here in the marketplace, but not on my Super Program or MX) but would require modification (if such a thing is possible) to work on a dSLR.

The glass is pretty clean, with a few cleaning marks, but looks crystal clear when looking through it. The body of the finder is in excellent shape, and the case is worn but perfectly serviceable.

Included: Finder, case.

Shipping: Free in the USA by FedEx 2nd Day or USPS Priority, whichever is cheaper.

FYI - I sold one of these last summer and the buyer said that with a little modification the attachment bracket it will fit his Pentax DSLR (he had a *ist and a K20d). I kicked myself afterward for selling it without trying that mod.

His description of the mod (per Kevindt): "I simply made a thin cut at the top of each side with a very narrow cut-off wheel to allow the sides to be gently sprung out the 0.75 mm each side that the DSLR finder rim is wider than the film bodies"
