If only it was a Leica ...
Pentax stuff actually. A weird assortment. ME Super in good condition but l can't get the LEDs to work. It fires on 125 though.
There's a Pentax 50mm and a 28mm f2.8 with clear optics and a Vivitar 28-200 so that makes it worthwhile. And a couple of rolls of Superia 400 which look unused. Plus an assortment of flashes, filters and a remote sensor.


Bag is yours if you want it. One of the buckles is missing and the seam has a split on one side, which will need patching

Nice haul. Hopefully the me super will work, notorious for bad electrics. What's the bag made out of?

Not exactly sure what the bag's made of. It seems to be some king of thick canvas.
I can send it down if you are interested.

I took the top off the ME Super and cleaned any contacts i could see but it all looked pretty good in there. No corrosion and no loose solder joints. That's about as far as I can go.
I'd like to check the connection from under the battery box but it looks like the camera needs taking apart to get at that

I don't know why the ME Super is so unreliable, I tend to leave them unless they have a decent lens fitted. I've tried to revive a good few but they just won't have it. I picked up a Yashica accessory shoe light meter from the car boot sale along with a Konica Pop 10 point and shoot.

Nice. I like the 109s. Some moody clouds there too.
Good that the FM works OK.

I'm glad it worked too. Didn't want a repeat of the X700 misfire. I wish I had take that first shot on landscape not portrait.
