Pentax S2 Rare 1/1000s speed - 55mm F2 Prime Lens - Exposure Meter Attachment


This Pentax S2 is a rare version of a somewhat common camera. The Pentax S2 was released in 1959, a year after the 'K' with a top shutter speed of 1/500s, and through it's manufacture ending in the late 1960's had some tweaks made to the design with later models being given a top shutter speed of 1/1000s and being branded as the S2 Super, this camera managed to acquire the higher shutter speed but not the rebranded name plate.

In perfect working order with the shutter speed professionally tested for accuracy, the light seals replaced, and the exposure meter attachment tested, this is a beauty of a camera with a bit of unique provenance to it. Has a number engraved on to the back, and a small dent which would be covered by the exposure meter attachment. Attachment has a very slightly uneven surface which can be seen on the left side in photo number 5, it looks like it may be slightly dented in from being dropped, but appears to function fully despite it.

Comes with original Super Takumar 55mm f2 lens, battery operated exposure meter, case, and strap. Case only fits when exposure meter is not installed. Also included is one roll of our premium expired Fuji Superia 100iso colour film.
