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. Please don't mail us with other than constructive suggestions or to rectify mistakes found within this site, thank you.

One user of this site has written to me, and has mentioned that--because he has not been able to use the posting feature--he would like to know if anyone has an LX battery pack for the motor drive to sell...working or not (easily rebuildable, and much better with newer batteries than NiCads, for sure). If you are the one to supply such, and cannot post here too, please write me above and I will forward the information to I.E., of our on-line LX community. Let us go the extra mile and help one another. --Jay

For all participants information, I have now received four different e-mails from users of this site saying after writing and clicking on the post feature for posting comments, none was posted. Further, no such postings appeared in the administrative area of this site. What to do? --Jay

Been away a lot lately and very busy, hence no postings for a while.
Anyway, the other week I was fortunate in obtaining a mint condition and very competitively priced 2nd hand lens for my LX's and *istds (awaiting the K10D body). It's the SMC FA 43mm f1.9 Limited Edition and whilst I have not yet got any results from the current film in my LX with this lens, initial tests on the *istds are excellent indeed. A truly beautiful lens with the sharpness, clarity etc.. 2nd to none. It will likely become my standard fitting now on the LX when out and about taking general shots.

Two concerns

I've received two e-mails where contributors to this site attempted postings and clicked the posting box: yet their postings did not post! They wrote to ask what is up.

I will enjoy the continued use of Velvia, having some already stocked, due to Tony's revelation on its new issuance. Yet, too, feel a little weary for it has doubled in price in three years. Will the new batch then reflect the current price of the old ISO 50 emulsion? --Jay

Following constant pressure from avid fans to bring back the superb Fuji Velvia 50 slide film, Fuji are going to bring out a NEW version of the Velvia 50 ISO in early 2007!

A new permanent game? About 80% of bookings now received are digital, 20% to be on film. For the working photographer, how is your scheduling: digital vs. film? --Jay
