Here are my Pentax playthings.










A list of the lenses would be far too long but they are all shown in my blog if you're interested. (See link in my sig)

From ultraminiature to the beast . . . outstanding! Your ES II is in far better shape then mine and I hope it is fully working condition! For the new year, I resolved not to covet my neighbor's camera so I am glad you're not my neighbor!

Interesting -- not knowing where the auto110 fell in the branding history, I was unaware that it had a small, embossed but not white-painted "ASAHI" over its "PENTAX". I guess I've never before seen a sufficiently large, clear, and beautiful picture of one to notice that. (I've just tape-measured the camera in the picture above: 15 cm as displaying on my screen, so about 1.5x larger than life!) Nice camera pr0n on all accounts, and it does make me want to finally shell out the cash to Eric to resuscitate my bricked ESII.

Eric fully restored my original AP too. I will be sending him my K2 and ES II but I am afraid the latter may require a PCB replacement.

SF1 Kit in unused condition

Here's the first step to my (unfortunate but necessary) conversion to AF film bodies.

I picked up the ESII shown above for next to nothing but it had some problems so I sent it to Eric and it came back in absolutely incredible condition! That guy is awesome!

I picked up a none working ES II for the lens that was on it which looked rough. It is my first fisheye and it has been my goto lens since . . .

I can't believe how sharp the lens is on test charts and real world tests.

Very 80's style.

Not even $80, either. It is astounding that I bought my MESuper in 1984 and this was first released in 1989. That's a LOT of change in just 5 years.

The ME Super was released in 1980 but I was wondering if you have a flux capacitor DeLorean for that time travel bit . . .
