Was testing some lenses before listing them the other day, and my subject was my Pentax MX...











(first 2 are with the F50/2.8 Macro - 3rd was with the D-FA*50/1.4 (not for sale) )

Gorgeous specimen!
Anything I should look out for when mine arrives..? yes, Iíve plumbed for one!
Has been used frequently even up until recently so not too concerned.

Always got a soft spot for the MX. First proper camera.....and still going strong 40 years on.

Love mine too. The first image is my favourite.

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

I got mine Christmas 1979, it was my last Christmas with my farther who passed away a few months later. So my MX is extra special to me.
