[SOLD] *ist DS body w/Katz-Eye screen (CONUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
*ist DS body w/Katz-Eye screen

Asking Price

Item Location
Brooklyn, New York

Item Description
Pentax *ist DS body with recently installed Katz-Eye Plus Split-Image screen. Excellent cosmetic & operational condition EXCEPT for the shutter/aperture wheel, which gives random, intermittent readings. Consequently, while the camera operates as it should on all automatic settings (Auto Picture, Programmed, all scene modes, AE-Lock), it can't really be used on any mode that requires the use of the wheel (AV, TV, Manual). Great deal for someone who only uses automatic settings. The Katz-Eye screen (which can, of course, be removed..... also included is the original stock screen which was removed to be replaced by the Katz-Eye) alone costs more than the asking price..... $90 + $10 shipping.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

It is probably something that can be easily fixed with some contact cleaner (like this: TV-Tuner/Control Cleaner & Lubricant -
sprayed liberally into the wheel and the wheel given several turns in both directions. Did it for me.
