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.

I've seen results from the Sigma 300mm-800mm f/5.6 EX APO lens and the images are superb. It's a huge& hefty lens though, and at a hefty price!.....But at least it is a little cheaper than the Nikon 1000mm secondhand lens that was selling for £30,000 recently!

Long lenses, few need "Big glass", but when so, what and where so? I noticed Sigma has dropped from its lens line the IS/OS 80-400mm announced in the spring. I awaited reviews, and none ever came. A few outlets listed it for awhile. Anyone know what happened? --Jay

John, go to page 25. message 242.(on the top, but it may slip a bit), there is an LX "shopping list" guide, or what to look for when buying one. It was addressed to Ian, but I hope it will not bother you. M.

John, check out this link for LX problems: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~distudio/thepentaxlx.html the only issue not mentioned on the suggested site that I'm aware of are difficulties with the mirror lock-up and the erratic shutter (do a search on this page, type 'erratic' in the box and spend some time reading the results). I'm being lazy (and reluctant) about selling my spare LX (fully functioning) with winder and grip. Ian wants the winder and grip but not the body and it seems you might want the LX so I'll mail you off list and maybe we will all be happy.

Any advice on buying an LX ? Any recommended retailers or just things to look out for ? I am in the South West of England but quite happy to take a recommend for any seller. Currently looking at Ffordes and Westcliff.
Many Thanks

Ian, I posted earlier for you what to look for as to a winder. If you are going the e-bay route ask questions around what I posted. This clarifies the winder's condition. I just returned a lens to someone of e-bay who did not represent it accurately, so get all the representation you can. Anton, my attempted humor was a rhyme, no literal action intended. I think Ian caught the drift of intent. --Jay

LOL! I guess your right, it's an English thing. Thanks for the link Anton (ebay - LX Winder). Do I remember there being an issue with the battery holder? I was hoping to find one at a shop, but they're looking thin on the ground. I don't know what I'm look for with LX winders.

Jay, it`s a pity for 18/3.5. Are you sure it can not be cleaned? Sigma 1.4X was shipped on thursday, so I will report as soon as I get (try) it. M.
