LX...at last

I was brought up using an MX, but had never even handled the pro camera flagship that was the LX. So I bought one on a well known auction site and it arrived today. It is a stunning bit of kit. All working fine except the "sticky mirror" syndrome means it takes a few shots before it gets into its stride.

I will just have to run some film through it.

It depends how much you use the old girl as welli would think the more you use her the better the shutter should get

Looks in beautiful condition! I made a point of buying mine from Japan as the Japanese seem to display more TLC for their equipment. I did the same with my 645.

Unfortunately I did get clobbered by the tax man, the first time in many, many years. The 645 I got away with! I want to acquire an Asahiflex but as the maximum amount that can be imported to the Netherlands seems to have reduced considerably I'm a little apprehensive! Perhaps I could buy one from the UK before it breaks away!
