    Ah memories, I was fortunate enough to own a LX back in the day. It was build like like a brick and handled something similar, although the little add on grip did improve the handling. An take anywhere handle anything camera.

    Pity Pentax never did get into producing a digital pro model.

    @Danny: Nope, Out are the K-7 and now Tatataaaa 645D. Thats pro, aint it?

    But I give in, they never reahced the charm and lightness an taktile sensation of the MX. I bought one some weeks ago and immediatly fell in love deeply. My last images are from the first roll of bw it took.

    I just got really sad because when I saw this picture on the side, I thought it was the "for sale" section of jpg mag." To me... film is still very much alive.

    I had a 'Spotmatic F' for years...loved it...until they could no longer get parts for it and it could not be repaired. I wish I still had it. Lots of memories there.

    Nice shot. I started out in the 70's with a Pentax MX...and later the MEsuper....loved those cameras. Later bought them back cheap at Didn't realize how small they are! They are the size of the mirrorless cameras of today.

    Allen Freeman said (29 Jan 2015):
