Ten years ago I sold my first Pentax, a KX, and was soon filled with regret. I now have three of them.
After roughly five years I haven't missed my LX.

One of my LX had a missing rubber mirror bumper when I got it. This caused the focusing to be off but was replaced when I got it serviced.
I had allowed for a service when I bought the camera so I wasn't too worried but it should be right if it has been serviced properly recently.

thankfully the seller has said he will take the camera back, get the focusing issue dealt with and get the camera back to me nd will cover all postage costs and expenses, which l am more than happy with

Glad to hear you have a cooperative seller. Good luck with it all.

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

Luckily we all have different tastes or we'd all be chasing the same model! I quite like my KX and KM, and I'll be using my newly-serviced-by-Eric K2DMD in a couple of weeks when I head to the States again, but my go-to film cameras are still my LX and my MX. Perhaps it is because I have small hands the smaller cameras seem to 'fit' better. K.

well finally the Lx has arrived back and the issue of the focus alignment has been sorted by the seller, the Lx now feels and works as sweet as a nut, very happy with how the seller handled the problem

Chris, let's face it: you are the only one on Earth who sold a LX and feels no regret.

If you saw a fellow drowning, and you could either save him
or photograph the event . . . . . . . What lens would you use ?
