My old-New MZ-S After Returning From Repair
Posted By gofour3

Yeah the rule of thumb you hear is that the MZ cameras with "Asahi Opt. Co. Ltd. Made in Japan" and a serial number of 4xxxxxx have the plastic gear, but the "PENTAX CORPORATION Made in Japan" and a serial number of 5xxxxxxx have brass.

However my MZ-S has a s/n of 5xxxxxxx, but has "Asahi Opt. Co. Ltd. Made in Japan"???

So who knows for sure with the MZ-S. I'm betting the MZ-S camera is different and all have the brass gear. The dodgy plastic gear MZ cameras were released in 1996/97, the MZ-S did not come out till 2001. By then Pentax had already replaced the plastic gears on these older bodies with brass, so it's unlikely Pentax would have used plastic gears in any MZ-S in 2001.

My advice is just buy one, as the MZ-S are great cameras and fun to use. I like the aperture/shutter speed imprinting on the film edge, great for testing new (to me) lenses. (F Series or newer for imprinting)

Thanks! The lens is new to me, so I'm running it through different films/shooting scenarios to see what it can deliver.

Item Description
OEM metal trunk for the SMC Pentax-M* 67 400mm F4 ED [IF] lens. (Lens is not included or available)

No major damage and all trunks parts are present and the trunk opens and closes as expected. (Note the original set of locking keys are missing and not included in the sale)

The inside is red lining fine and the nylon straps and plastic clips are in good shape.

Since the photos were taken of the trunk, I have cleaned it and replaced all the screws holding the hard black plastic corners, so the trunk looks a little better.

Height - 8 1/2 inches or 21.59cm

M42 Pancake lens? Options?

I guess the only Pentax M42 lenses that would be considered small enough to qualify as a pancake lens, would be the 17mm fisheye.

Reminds me of an old quote from a former Prime Minister of Canada and yes you can get a T-Shirt:

"Jean Chretien Pepper Quote" T-shirt by MacKaycartoons | Redbubble

"For me, pepper, I put it on my plate." November 25, 1997, at a press conference, in response to a question from Nardwuar the Human Serviette about whether Chrétien supported police use of pepper spray on protestors. Jean Chretien, Prime Minister of Canada.

The picture is from a cat sanctuary in Lanai, Hawaii. All the 600+ "residents" are former feral cats from the island. Yes this one has used up a few of it's nine lives living in the wild, but was completely friendly like most of the other cats.

Great place to visit if you like sun & cats...

Pentax made many "soft focus" lenses over the years, they do the trick nicely.

What happened to Bellows?
Posted By gofour3

Most likely when auto-focus cameras came out and the contacts between the lens/camera were lost with a bellows unit. Also AF cameras viewfinders were worse for manual focusing in a darker viewfinder due to the bellows light loss.

Is K2 an annoying camera to use ?

Another reason for a micro-prism screen in a K2DMD could be as simple as someone with a K2 MP and a K2DMD SI/MP just swapped screens for whatever reason.

Those optimal focusing screens for the K Series cameras were.are pretty rare and you don't see them very often. (Example I don't think I've ever seen a plain matte screen for sale and also if I remember correctly the K2 screens did not fit in the KX/KM).

Yep there were optional focusing screens for the K2/K2DMD, which you would have to special order and have it replaced by your local Pentax tech. The K2 came with either the micro-prism screen or the split-image screen and the K2DMD the split-image/micro-prism screen, so I'm not sure how much extra these screens sold for. (Can't find them in any Canadian Pentax price guide from that period)

My KX that I bought new had the micro-prism screen, when I bough my first Pentax camera with a split-image screen decades later I hated it. I was so used to the micro-prism, so I can see someone swapping out the K2DMD OEM screen.

We used to like playing with Duncan Spinning Tops back in the 1960's. You could do really neat tricks with them. (A least some people could :o)

They were still made of wood, as plastics were not as dominant yet.
