When I first met my wife, well over two decades ago she asked , 'why do you carry that camera everywhere?' my beloved LX, a year ago l sold most of my kit including two LX, , (although l mainly now shoot with Fuji x100 and x pro 1), l really regretted selling my Lx.................................and so l jumped at the chance of buying an Lx at a good price today and best of all it has had a recent CLA................................happy to say the least....yippee

I've often said my LX is the last camera I would get rid of. I still feel that way. Welcome back to the fold...

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

many thanks, luckily l kept my mx and pentax glass, always liked the lx/40 2.8 combo, so the Lx will not be too lonely on arrival

Welcome back - ignoring the schoolboy error of not having the strap lugs on the left hand side to allow for the grip! Kudos for getting the strap lugs, I doubt they're cheap on their own these days!

the Lx is still in the post as soon as it arrives l will arrange the lugs ready to fit a grip, always prefered the grip and verticle slung lx, my last two lx were set up that way
