What model is this?



There's one for sale on a local website for 40€.
A guy has offered the asking price, but I'm considering getting in line in case he doesn't come through.

To clarify, the S1a is pre-Spotmatic, with no internal meter. It is, however, a VERY well-built and finished camera. It also has an unmarked 1/1000 shutter speed and no self timer, being the less-expensive brother to the SV. More info can be found here. The S1a could definitely be a great option for a screwmount Pentax, particularly if you've got a handheld lightmeter.

If CLA'ed and working properly (both camera and lens) that is a decent price. I always have a second-hand camera CLA'ed immediately upon buying it unless the seller ahs the invoice for a recent maintenance.
