Pentax Medical Camera

I saw a very strange Pentax film camera today, it's a medical camera with code MF-1. Anyone know what is this?

QuoteQuote:
The Pentax MF-1 is a scientific camera made by Pentax and based on the body of the Pentax ME.

It has a special finder with a round image field. The image is aerial, there is no ground glass. It has a spot meter, the manual speed is 1/4 instead of 1/100, and it has FP and X sync.

Okay, I found that info, too. But is this camera worth buying? I mean, it's for sale, so how much do you think I should pay for this?

Looks like a cool camera. There are images on Dimitrov's K-mount Web site:

I really like the macro lens with built-in ring flash

Does the camera come with the lens?

Yes, with a strange looking lens inscribed "MACHIDA PE-MF". Not exactly the same as the picture on Dimitrov's site

medical Pentax

I've a Medical Nikkor. Very good for what it was designed to do. Hasn't many other applications. Like focusing to infinity or even 15 feet.
