Pentax K1000 with SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 lens

Shipping calculated at checkout.

This is a film-tested and perfectly working example of the venerable Pentax K1000 35mm SLR film camera with a very sharp SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 lens. It's difficult to tell its county of manufacture by serial number alone but the all-metal construction and Asahi Opt Inc' stamp indicates it was either made in Japan or Hong Kong (the later Chinese K1000s are much less well-built). The camera only requires a single LR44 or 357 battery for its light meter (optional).

The original manual is also included.

Condition notes
The camera and lens (SMC Pentax-F 50mm F1.7) were tested with film and performed superbly, delivering sharp, well-exposed images. In addition, we verified that the camera's shutter is accurate both in terms of speed and curtain symmetry through the speed range. 

The included lens also pairs very well with modern Pentax models (including DSLRs) as it supports auto focus and auto-exposure (the K1000 is an older camera and does not support these features but the lens is of course fully compatible with the camera's metering).
