¿ Pentax IQ Zoom 105 R, anyone use it ?
we finally beat our yashick t4 into submission and it stopped working. we had it for 4 years and put i dunno maybe 300 rolls of film through it ...
our local repair shop diagnosed the problem as being with the zone focusing mechanism - it is sticking at close focus and not all the time, so sometimes the camera will focus, and sometimes not. it could be repaired, but the flash board would go next, and that would be another 100 bucks ...
we did manage to get a hold of a nice ps camera to use and think about buying - its ( as the title of this thread suggests ) a pentax (iq?)zoom 105-R. the price can't be beat ( 50bucks ) and the entire manual is free on the pentax website. it seems like a pretty good camera - exposure compensation, multi exposure, double ( or more ) exposure, intermit. exposure, even bulb.
years ago i had used the lower-end pentax ps that also had a zoom lens, and it really didn't float my boat, but this one seems OK .. ( or so i think ).
anyone use this camera, and have any pearls of wisdom ( like don't buy it, or this camera is great! ). i have a week to take it for a test drive
