Ricoh KR-5 Super w/ 50mm f/2 Rikenon in Pentax K-mount in Excellent Condition
The Ricoh KR-5 Super is a great entry-level or student camera. It has simple match-needle metering, a rugged, fully-mechanical Copal CCS-M shutter, and even has MLU (mirror-lock-up) when you use the self-timer. The best thing about the KR-5 Super is that it uses the Pentax K-mount, which opens up vast possibilities for lens choices; it will take any K-mount lens with an aperture ring and that covers the full 35mm frame. The 50mm f/2 Rikenon is a gem of a kit lens, plastic-bodied maybe, but it performs beautifully and takes 52mm filters. The KR-5 Super makes for a great cold-weather camera: the mechanical shutter coupled with an Energizer 2L76 Lithium battery will work down to -30 Celsius easily. You could think of it as a Pentax K1000 with a vertical shutter and a higher X-sync of 1/125 sec. and MLU. Shutter speeds range from 1/8 - 1/1000 sec. + Bulb.; ISO Range: 12 - 3200; Meter is powered by 2 SR44/S76/357 equivalent batteries which are included; Combined weight: 680 grams. This camera and lens have been fully film-tested and the camera has new light seals and an accurate meter. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
