Pentax K mount


The Pentax ME Super is an electronic 35mm SLR. It is unusually compact, lightweight and solid. The ME Super is a great little camera with aperture-preferred automation as well as manual exposure. The ME Super has a classic look because it is. It usually comes in chrome as shown, as well as black. It’s a real all-metal camera. The ME Super is a straight-ahead camera that just shoots and doesn’t get in your way.



  • Standard 35mm film.
  • 24 x 36 mm image area.


  • Actual view through a Pentax ME Super viewfinder.
  • Huge 0.95x magnification with 50mm lens.
  • 92% coverage.
  • -1.0 fixed diopter (standard 1 meter apparent distance).
  • Silver-coated glass pentaprism.
  • LED dots light along the left; the numbers you see are merely overlay next to the actual LED dots.

Focus Screen

  • Horizontal split-image in center.
  • Microprism collar.
  • Matte (ground glass) field with standard Fresnel and condensers.
  • The traditional ground glass shows the real depth of field even with fast lenses, something newer SLRs and DSLRs can’t do. Then again, the ME Super’s finder will get much darker if used with slower lenses (f/4 for instance).

Light Meter

  • Full-aperture TTL GPD (through-the-lens Gallium photo diode).
  • Center weighted.
  • Meter range with f/1.4 lens: LV 1 to 19.
  • Meter reads to 4 full seconds.


  • ASA 12 ~ 1,600.

Exposure Compensation

  • -2 to +2 stops, set in full stops.


  • SEIKO MFC-E2 vertical metal focal plane.
  • 1/2,000 to 4 seconds in full stops in manual, battery powered and timed.
  • 1/125 and Bulb, mechanical (no batteries needed).
  • Self timer setable from 4 to 10 seconds.
  • Standard threaded cable release socket.


  • Maximum shutter speed (sync) with electronic flash: 1/125. Hot shoe.
  • Dedicated terminal for AF 200S or AF 160 flashes; sets 1/125 in Auto and M modes and has an in-finder ready light.


The camera body is in excellent condition with almost no signs of use or wear. The viewfinder is in good condition but shows signs of marks on the bottom. This has been caused by marks on the focusing screen. The mirror is clean from dust, marks and scratches. The light seal on the lens mount is deteriorating and will need replacing. This should be okay to use, but will eventually cause issues long term. The film back is in great condition with almost no signs of use. The lens optics are clear from dust, marks and scratches. The lens body is in excellent condition with no signs of use.


Includes: Lens cap.

Condition Grade: B

Item number: 2296
