Very nice.

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

Funny you should say that. I normally prefer black bodies, but in the case of the MX, I think the silver one looks better.

Possibly because my first Pentax was a silver MX...
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

Good job I have two silver ones then! Though a black one is my 'holy grail'.

I'd agree, the silver ones look more stylish to me. I took my near mint black KX into a Leica dealer who went giddy over the 'black paint', but he wasn't best pleased to see HP5+ in the reminder slip on the back - Tri-X all the way for him...

I've got two black ones! Do you want to buy one of them?

Oh Christ. How much would it set me back? Or swap for a just-serviced one?

Mine will be going on ebay soon, once I've put new seals in them and sorted out a couple of issues. I will sell them for between £130 and £150 depending on condition and whether they have any issues or not.
