3969110HiddenBought her new as a graduation gift to myself from the left-over stock of a camera store that was closing down. price listed includes carry case, 2 Takumar zoom lenses, filters, and AF160 flash, etc. This thing has been all over the world and is obviously built like a tank. All shutter, focusing, automatic/electronic bits function perfectly. Viewfinder/mirror still clear. EXCELLENT cosmetic condition, which is really amazing considering how much use I've gotten from it. The L/A/M/B switch can get a little sticky from non-use, but it loosens up easily with a few quick rotations. As with all 40+ year old foam rubber, the light seals are melted and deteriorating; need to get after that.Fairfield, New Jersey

3963238HiddenGood camera that received an overhaul on June 20, 2014. New light seals, checked meter, cleaned. Good as new. This camera is the reason I'm a Pentax guy. My dad bought it when the ME Super first came out and I liked the camera so much I bought my own in late 1981 when I was fresh out of Navy boot camp. Lots of sentimental value in this camera. My dad used it a lot but always took good care of it.Got it from my dad in June 2014

3959800HiddenBought used, recent CLA by seller John Titterington
Seems to have a take-up reel clutch slippage problem; some slippage is necessary but here it's too easy/loose, so the film doesn't wrap as tightly as it ought, binding toward the ends of 36-exp rolls. No problem with 24-exp rolls.

Some slight scratches on bottom, a small ding on the upper plate, almost as though metal fasteners from a past neck strap was pinched when closing the film compartment.
