Lately I've been shooting quite a bit of analog with my K1000. While it's certainly a great camera and an emobidment of 'simplicty is divinity' phrase, I'd like to try my hands on something more advanced. Or at least having DOF preview, aperture number visible in VF and a shutter button lock .

Would love to get an LX, but I'm afraid I can't drop that much money they are going for. So I'm thinking about MX. Small, but with big VF and quite a lot of features. Preferably in black, because reasons.

Doesn't have to be cosmetically super mint+++++ whatever. I do care about good shutter times, accurate lightmeter plus reasonable state of mirror dumper and light seals. Would be awesome if serviced not long ago. I don't need a lens, but will certainly consider spare focusing screens and a winder

I prefer sale within EU if possible (I'm based in Poland).

Best regards

The MX is certainly an upgrade from the K1000 and the black ones are gorgeous (I just bought one myself, from someone on this forum).

Not black I'm afraid, but I have one in working order (self timer is inoperative). New battery, accurate meter, film through it a month ago. Pleasure to use.

Lens is an SMC Pentax-A f2, 50mm

Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

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