    Hi all, just returned from a 2 week vacation to North Queensland in Australia and while there I picked up a Pentax ME camera and two lenses for next to nothing. (about what it's worth :wink: )

    The only catch, the battery chamber cap is missing. As the camera is full electronic and auto exposure, I only have 1 shutter speed working until I get a battery cap. The Australian pentax distributor has none and I am now starting the tedious ring-around to the camera repair shops in Oz to see if someone has one.

    If anyone out there has a dead ME with a battery cap, PM me if you're willing to part with just the cap...

    Thanks
