The Pentax Espio 105S is one of the later models in this underrated line of compact point-and-shoot 35mm cameras.

Options
If you opt for '+ battery' it will be a new CR123A 3 volt lithium battery; if you choose '+ battery & film' you'll also get a 24 exposure roll of Fujicolor 200 film.

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. The camera is in excellent aesthetic condition (see photos).
