Released in 1991, the Pentax PZ-10 is a simple but very capable autofocus 35mm SLR camera. The camera has an 'auto-everything' program mode, a metered manual mode, and something called 'hyper-manual' (a manual mode that can select the appropriate shutter speed with the press of a button). The included lens is a very flexible Sigma aspherical 28-105mm F2.8-4 (12 elements in 10 groups).  

The PZ-10 is compatible with most Pentax K-mount style lenses (KAF2, KAF, KA, and K varieties).

This camera uses a pentamirror rather than a conventional pentaprism. This means the image in the viewfinder isn't quite as bright but it makes the camera noticeably lighter (a pentaprism is a fairly substantial piece of glass). 

This camera requires two CR2 batteries (available as an option).

Condition notes
The camera and lens are in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) Our testing found the camera's auto exposure accuracy is excellent and its shutter speeds are show very good accuracy over the entire range except the 1/2000 speed is a bit slow.
