Will this "battery pack" work on an MZ-60?

Hey guys,

Just got an MZ-60. Not a fan of the batteries it takes, but I stumbled on this item on ebay

Pentax AA Battery Pack FG for MZ ZX Cameras --- 45-day Limited Warranty | eBay

It doesn't say MZ-60 in the item description. But the shape looks right. Does anyone know if this item would fit an MZ-60?

Thanks forum!

I'm 90% sure it'll work on any MZ-series camera except for the MZ-S, which has it's own grip.

I've got one of those grips I could sell you for less - my MZ-M died a while back. I see you're in Canada as well - I could do $20 shipped for it. It's in perfect shape with the box, etc.

I have one of the Pentax battery grips but never use it due to getting a bunch of batteries given to me and I like the size of the camera without it. The instructions only list several cameras. I believe that is due to the grip and the instructions being manufacturer prior to some of the other camera models. I looked at a MZ7 the other day that some one was selling and it sure looked to me that the grip would fit it even though it too was not on the instructions. Good luck

I have the battery pack FG on my ZX-60, the US name for the MZ-60. It works perfectly. I have big hands, so it adds a little more heft for me.
