For Auction: 1957 Asahi Pentax AP


Link Posted 04/04/2011 - 19:01
I've just listed a very tidy '57 AP (in need of a shutter service) on eBay. Couldn't really offer it as a sale as I have no idea how I would've gone about pricing it, but thought there may be some on here interested in a little Pentax history (for those that don't know, the camera was the first ever to carry the Pentax name and is the grandaddy of them all - it also happens to be extremely rare).

Auction here: link

It finishes around 6.40pm next Monday (11 April) so good luck to anyone from here who fancies a bid.

My, you can write a listing. Have you thought about holding seminars? If I hadn't made a major eBay purchase twice, by mistake, last week I'd bid!

lol @ the idea of me running seminars

If you want to have a bid and pay after next payday I'm usually quite flexible, as long as folks tell me their plans in advance.

She is a beauty, but I bought a K2 and 50/1.2 at the same auction so they're my new toys for playing with...

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Never mind his piggy bank - explain to his parents he doesn't need a college fund...
