1958 Asahi Pentax "S" with a Tak 55/1.8 on the bay
Posted By: SteveM, 01-06-2012, 09:17 PM

In case someone is interested in a rare classic. They seem to have 58% off gig which brings the price down to something reasonable considering that it looks like there are a few minor marks etc.

Nice catch Steve - but - the prism is dented. I think it is overpriced at the discounted price.

Good point Paul....missed the dent. I'm not sure how many of these there were produced. I paid slightly more for mine than the one listed here, but it is also in very good shape.

Now if I could just find a black one....

I saw a silver K and Zebra 55/1.8 on the site today (I have one, but not the Takumar lens cap - lost that in the packing material).

I think I have all the collectible cameras I need, and I'll probably sell the H1a - what's the point? I have an SV..

Your equipment list is impressive.
