All features and specs has been tested and there are working properly. Although there are traces of usage, but concurrent with its age, we can say that this camera is still good condition and fires it shutter accordingly, inner and outer part is clean (see photos). Also, based form it appearance, the previous owner might kept it as primary body or frequently use it for shooting. Battery chamber is clean (free 2 pcs of LR44 batteries), film interior chamber is also clean, electronics mechanism was tested and proven to be working as it should. We rated this camera as 8/10, some minor brassing on the baseplate. Please be advised that this is the limited edition of Pentax ME, so it was originally produced with brown leatherette with SE mark stamped on its body.

Apart from that, this camera is bundled with SMC Pentax-M 50mm lens with maximum aperture of f/1.7. Lens is clean but there are presence of dust. No oil stain at the blades, focusing ring turns accordingly, aperture open and close smoothly at all f-value. Besides that, the light seals were newly changed by me, so you don't have to worry. Just load film in it and shoot! Oh ya, we will provide you with soft copy of the camera manual for your references.
