Ricoh KR5 35mm Camera with Riconar F2.2 55mm Lens

Here we have a lovely Ricoh KR5 35mm Camera with Riconar F2.2 55mm Lens. This camera is in great condition with a few age related marks on the body. The camera is in full working condition with the Lightmeter and shutter working as they should. The viewfinder and lens do suffer with a few specs of dust, while there are a few minor signs of lens fungus. This can be cleaned if you know what you are doing. 

The KR-5 is one of a series of SLRs for 35mm film made by Ricoh, all accepting K-mount lenses. (Later models include the KR-5 Super, KR-5 Super II, etc.) The original KR-5 was introduced in 1978, and in some markets it is designated the Ricoh XR500.

The original KR-5 is the first in the series, from about 1979, and is the most limited. Its standard lens only offers a speed of f/2.2, and its range of shutter speeds is 1/8–1/500th sec. plus B, with flash sync at 1/60th sec. or lower. Two 1.5v silver-oxide batteries are needed to power the light metering circuit, which has a match-needle indicator in the viewfinder. The wind lever must be pulled away from the body to switch on the meter and unlock the shutter release.

The ground glass screen is provided with a diagonal split-image spot surrounded by a microprism. The KR-5 has a hot shoe but no PC terminal.
