    Recently acquired from ebay, Pentax ES II, cosmetically and optically like new EXCEPT that Viewfinder blind is locked shut, and nothing I do (shutter-speed dial, battery-test button, exposure-compensation-dial, hitting it, praying) has any effect. I COULD just gestimate the distance frame bygolly, and shoot, and with that lovely Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 1.8/55, it would probably come out with a good photograph, ... but with such a beautiful TTL, it seems a shame.

    H E L L P !!!

    Hi Ivan,

    I bought mine from Adorama for US$349 + US$47 shipping. It shipped on a Thursday and was in Sydney by Sunday night. I also applied for an International Warranty from Pentax USA and had that within a week.

    I had a few issues at the beginning with it hunting but it seems to have settled down now, and i'm happy with it. Oh yeah, one more thing, it's too slow if you are considering using a TC with it.

    Hello Anne

    I was wondering about your 55-300 glass as to which US seller/store did you get it from and the cost with postage

    Seen it for $US400 from BH photo but also @ Berger Bros for $US350

    The siggi 70-300 macro all right but the 55-300 looks exceptional

    cheers
