Pentax 6x7 + 3 lenses, $275

I happened across this a couple of days ago. I thought long and hard about this, and decided to pass. I know absolutely nothing more than what the ad indicates. I have not called. But it appears to be the original body of the Pentax 6x7 with NO mirror up capability, and the post says the light meter is broken. The three included lenses are the 55/f3.5, 105/f2.8 and 135/f4.It appears to be a really reasonable price - for a unit that - from the picture appears to be in good shape. I don't know anything about it. It's not mine, nor anyone I know. But if its as good as it appears, then it might find some appreciation here.

If it were a 645 I would have it sitting right here next to me. The 6x7 is just way toooooo large for me.

FWIW, the camera in that listing does have Mirror Lock Up.

That's a really good price for everything if the lenses are okay. And, yeah, I see a MLU button on that 6x7 too. One thing to ask the seller is it is just the meter that doesn't work or a broken camera body chain causing the problem.

After reading the posts here, I decided to call. The gentleman has decided to take the camera off the market. The posting had been sitting on Craigslist for 20 days.
