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...

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!

lovely piece of kit
Pentax k100d, k30d 18-55, Tamron 70-300, Tamron 500 mirror, pentax 10-17, 50 1:4, a manual 28, some extension tubes and a bagful of memory cards. That's all i need... and a load of film cameras too... that's it, honest.

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
