    For sale is an Asahi Pentax S1a body with the 55mm f/2 Super Takumar, leather case, original metal lens cap, instruction manual and metal lens shade. Camera in very good condition, a few small scratches on top of the prism from a cold shoe and some mild signs of use on the body but overall very clean. Shutter speeds accurate, film transport smooth, focus and aperture both working perfectly. Glass on the lens is clean except for a few tiny specks of dust, common for lenses of this vintage. Case well used but structurally sound. - $60[​IMG]

    These are great to use cameras: I already have two! :smile:

    Some of the S1's have a two-stage release shutter: the first pressure stops the lens down to shooting aperture, so you can admire the DOF, the second pressure releases the shutter. Other S1's only have one pressure and go straight to shutter release. (I have one of each)

    Which type is this one?

    This one closes the aperture with the shutter.
