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'm updating my whole system! Maybe I'm MAD, but you only live once! I'm getting the shakes about losing my beloved lenses and other equipment, but I suddenly said that it had to be now or never. The only problem is that I still haven't decided which equipment to get, and I need to act very quickly, because I'm planning another major expedition in September - and I can't go without cameras and lenses! Knowing me, I'll probably find a sudden urge to buy all those lovely 'old' lenses back again (like I always seem to do) at a later date! I'll keep you posted on the progress of my 'madness', Anton. Will the new gear improve my photography? - I doubt it, but at least I can have some fun buying new 'sweets'.

Hey! Globetrotter, is that you selling your favourite lenses on eBay; 200mm 2.8 A*, 24mm f2.0 FA* & 100mm 2.8 FA Macro??? What's going on? You only just got the 200 (again) didn't you... maybe it's not you. I fancy the 24 f2.0 but I've already got the 24 f2.8 A, so I've got to be sensible. AB

Arrrghh! I should have said the TTL cord that attaches to the camera body (not the one that fits the flash contacts on the viewfinder) for obvious reasons. Now I shut up AB

Sorry but I'm getting forgetful. Before you risk the danger of the damage you may do when you go a poking around under the viewfinder cover. Try your flash with a TTL cord to see if it functions properly. If it doesn't then it's not the viewfinder but something else. If it functions properly on the cable but not on the viewfinder then crack the viewfinder open and good luck. AB
