The Pentax Espio 105G (known as the IQZoom 105G in some countries) is one of the later models in this well-regarded line of compact point-and-shoot 35mm cameras.

Here's how it was described in in its original catalog

Encased in a fashionable champagne-gold body, the ESPIO105G offers a simple, effortless way to preserve memorable family scenes. Its versatile 38mm-105mm zoom lens lets you capture a variety of subjects in ideal composition, while its simplified operation with user-friendly functions ensure that you shoot beautiful pictures frame after frame.

Condition notes

The camera was tested with a battery and film installed and all functions are working well (we didn't develop the film). We verified the film plane focus accuracy on an autocollimator and tested its exposure accuracy on a shutter tester. The camera is in excellent cosmetic condition (see photos).
