Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Pentax LX - Message Board/Guestbook

Industry wide indications and ceasing film body development by Pentax altogether in early 2003 more than suggest the manual focus Pentax LX will not be having an upgrade (except, perhaps for very rare Limited Edition Models hand assembled by special commission by the new HoyaPentax Corporation). In 2008 Pentax became a division of Hoya Corporation, which had together with Pentax released jointly developed professional grade optics (since 2005); Pentax has shifted its attention to development of auto focus Digital SLRs having build qualities constructed for the long run--now with weather seals--like the LX. You may use this site for common support and sharing of mutual users knowledge or experiences among yourselves. You may also use this message board as a guestbook for the advanced users Pentax SLR cameras from the LX forward, including many such auto focus film cameras, and Pentax digital SLR cameras. We keep the site going too for the WORD SEARCH FEATURE found here as to its magnificent K mount system user archives: as have been shared here for many years. Have an inquiry related to Pentax gear? First try KEYING IN YOUR KEY WORD(S) for a preexisting archived response on your subject of inquiry from this LX site. If your inquiry or sharing is from advanced users K10D, K20D, or K200D SLR needs, proceed on to t NEW PENTAX ADVANCED USERS K10D, K20D SLR site.

This LX site was specifically created for the great Pentax LX SLR camera model(s), and now has incorporated increased opportunity for an expanded interchange with the introductions of the Pentax K10D, K20D, and K200D SLRs to include advanced and professional digital user models. Interchange is encouraged with the intention to continue as a forum for advanced system users of past K-mount film based SLR systems and the mentioned Pentax DSLRs. With decreasing forum traffic here, and enthusiasts moving on with SLR digital imaging products futures, we hope the continued convenience of this site and its past Pentax advanced LX users data archives--provided by the database KEY WORD SEARCH FEATURE found here--can be very useful to you. Most past site user techniques, systems components, and lenses of Pentax advanced applications--as have been past examined by users on this site--are still of use regarding the newest Pentax SLRs.

No wonder... this is my personal favourite page, I thought it has been deleted. It is alright, people do made mistakes at times, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that involved in maintaining this highly informative forum (should have tried email and informed MIR earlier but I cannot find leofoo's email).

Hello from Spain ¡ Could anyone help me ? . I wish purchase a second hand LX and have 4 offers from 2nd hand stores:
1.- Series number : 5236062 / 695 Canada dollars/ Product. : 1982?
2.- Series number : 5255346 / 520 euro with grip B/ Product: 1982 ?
3.- series number : 5334320 / 800 euro/ Production : 1987 ?
4.- series number : 5334849/ 673 euro/ Product. 1987 ?
I am afraid about the " sticky mirror " , which I´ve read is more common in early models ( 1980-1984 ) . Is it true ? The pictures I´ve seen of all 4 seems good.
Thanks a lot for help me
Kind regards/Juan

Nope, AB is not saying "I told you so", AB still remembers the tiny parts pinging out of his SMC-A 20mm 2.8 and the subsequent disastrous application of WD-40. You've got to live; you've got to have a go at the reasonable and the not so reasonable. Didn't work for you this time Ian, good luck with getting it fixed. AB p.s. at least the screwdriver didn't slip and mangle the mirror rest, scratch the side of the mirror box, rip through the shutter curtain, dent and scratch the pressure plate before impaling your finger, eh?

"That requires very good screw-driver (Philips-type, size "00" with cca. 90mm handle + at least 50mm long tip). Taiwan-made tools are strongly NOT recomended! " Ian, I am sorry, this is the part which I forgot to put in my focus adjust compilation. Yes, excelent screw-driver is a must here. I work only with German-made tools, my screw-drivers (including "00x50" required for focus adjust) are Chrome-Vanadium-Molybdan with forged tip. It has seen many stubborn screws over the years, but no trace of wear and tear. That adjust screw is not so hard to damage, not to mention break, any decent tool. It can only get damaged itself which is the problem sometimes. And do not even think about removing mirror box - box is die-cast piece so no extra space for tool. Anyhow, if you had that bad experience, calling cavalry for help is not such bad idea. M.

Well, I tried. Got it all worked out, knew exactly where I was going. Sorted. The damn adjust screw is seized. Bent one driver and broke the tip off another. The screw is still OK. I figured the force necessary to crack the screw would trash it. Must of been a quality screw to stand bending/breaking a driver. Unless I can get the mirror box out, I don't stand a chance (IF that's the solution). I even had the bayonet off to get better driver clearance. I'm beaten. It'll have to go off to PJ's (I dare say John won't be impressed I tried). Yeah, I know AB is saying "I told you so". Well, you did, and you were right (Dammit!) Ian

Mico, email received, many thanks. I'm reading it now. After digesting, I may try the adjustments over the weekend when I have a clear two hours or so. Thanks again for taking the time. - Ian.
