Now that takes me back a few years. Think it was the best camera I have ever owned.

That looks like an excellent example of an MX, my favourite film camera. Sadly most of them are pretty beaten up now.

I've just spent a week on holiday using a brace of MXes, one with Ektar 100 colour print film, and one with BW... Treated well, they go on and on. K.

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

I'm using an ME Super at the moment! Certainly interested to see the results using a Vivitar Series 1 35-85mm on it!

Still a beauty ! I gave mine away to a girlfriend. Bad move. Now no camera and no girlfriend! Still, you learn by your mistakes.
This camera had such good design features and it was a pleasure to use. I think the recent Pentax designs like the K3 are getting close but I wonder if they will be classics like this. A great lens too, clear and sharp.

Best wishes,
