For Sale: Pentax 6x7 Kit

Well, not yet actually. Though I am thinking about selling this behemoth. I love the medium-format look, but it comes at a heavy price. The camera is bulky and heavy, and as a consequence, I just don’t use it much. The last time I traveled with it was to Florida. I captured some lovely shots, but it was too cumbersome to carry around. I think I have had my fun with it, and it’s time to pass it along.


This kit includes:

  • a second-generation Pentax 67 📷 in pretty good, but used shape; everything works as expected
  • a TTL viewfinder
  • an extra battery
  • a genuine Pentax strap
  • an eye cup
  • SMC Takumar 105mm f/2.4 lens in good condition, including original hood and skylight filter; also included are a set of ND filters, a black pro mist ¼ filter, and an extra lens cap
  • SMC Takumar 55mm f/3.5 lens in mint condition, including lens hood, original cap and skylight filter

I’m hoping to get $1000, but it’ll likely be significantly less after eBay takes its pound of flesh. I’m probably going to put a few lenses up for sale, too.
