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.

All right, all right! Enough already! I get the idea. Dammit! I was looking forward to playing with the lovely cogs and gears. Damn you! Now of course if I do try, and get into trouble, I'll get a barrage of "WE TOLD YOU SO"'s. Mico, HELP! Ahhh it can't be that difficult. But for now I'll leave it alone. I've stepped away from the scewdriver. -Ian.3. From : Anton (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I second that opinion.....There is certainly no need to open the LX winder casing. If the winder is working perfectly, there is no need to tamper with it, and the less dust that enters the workings the better.5. From : Ian (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Ian to Ian You can't beat the old rule; "If it aint broke, don't fix it". Infact, it is almost certainly dry lubricated for life, PTFE gears, etc. Don't do it!6. From : Anton (email@example.com)

Hi guys! I think this might be a question for Mico or Jay. I'd like to get inside my LX Winder and give it a light lube job. No particular reason, it's working perfectly. I just have the urge. Ok, I'm a fanatic when it comes to lubrication, I confess. Do I go in via the top plate? Should I expect booby traps etc? - Ian.
Globetrotter, thanks for the kind comment regarding my recent photos.8. From : Ian (email@example.com)

Yes, I have spare covers for both the LX body and the viewfinder. I guess it's the body one you need. Drop me an e-mail if you're interested. Say £2.00 plus postage to wherever you are? Thanks to the globetrotter for the info about possibilities of new LX. Yes, I'd heard about the v.v. expensive special one. OK if I win the lottery. What I want is the bog-standard, black body plus viewfinder prism. e-bay noted. Ian9. From : GLOBETROTTER (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Ian Thompson-Yates - some nice shots on your website taken with LX equipment. The photos on my website and most of the photos in my new book were also taken using Pentax equipment:
Regards to the other Ian's question about ordering new LX bodies from Japan. I think the only one that you are still able to order is the very expensive LX2000 special edition model (view other pages of this website for more information and photos of the LX 2000 model). I think the best idea is to keep an eye on www.ebay.com for 'mint' secondhand LX bodies on auction. Sometimes you can pick one up in virtually new condition, although it is getting harder to find one as the years go buy.10.
