Mint condition mx-1 for sale.
Shutter count 952.
Comes in original packaging with UK accessories and manuals.
Screen protector fitted from new.
Also included black leather carrying case and extra spare non pentax battery.
Looking for 195 for this package.
Lovely camera I just don't use it hence the really low shutter count.






Cheers,

Bruce

I don't want to interfere but if you don't already own one of these cameras and you're thinking you'd like something smaller than a DSLR that still produces great RAW images...

Well, put it this way. There are no new ones left and the fat-heads at Ricoh haven't bothered to produce a follow-up model.
Best wishes,

Andrew

thanks Andrew
And you're completely correct.
Prices of these are only going to increase ( until they release a newer version which does not seem likely.)
And with the brass ends and solid build of the MX-1 the investment should be a safe one for a buyer.
I just have so many cameras I never use I've had to choose the 3 I use least and try and move them on.
Cheers,

Bruce

I'm embarrassed to say the MX-1 and Canon EOS M are the ones I use most while my lovely DSLRs are locked away gathering dust. Some photographer eh?

I recently came to the exact same conclusion and have done the same as you, however the MX-1 is the camera I chose to keep. The K-01, the K-50 and the original Q plus all my K-mount lenses went. Reason was, the MX-1 was the camera I picked up the most often.

Hi Andrew
Looking through your work tells me you are a great photographer....
I think I'm a gear freak...buy a better lens then don't really use it if results not perfect straight off.
Still not found anything that gives me better results than my 18-135kit lens...and I find the KS2 more enjoyable to use than the k3...I always worry about not having the right lens with me when I should just be out taking pics.
If I don't get the money I'm looking for may well give the mx1 another go and maybe even try it in good conditions and with the dslrs at home....
Cheers,

Bruce

FYI: I've had my MX-1 listed for sale on various sites at AUD$350 (170) for a few weeks without a single bite.
Possibly the wrong time of year with people needed back-to-school cash for their kids.
