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.

Hi, I recently bought a used LX that worked fine for a while. The shutter is now jammed or some part of the release is broken: the shutter is cocked but will not fire when the release is squeezed, so the advance lever won't advance. There is no film in the camera. Has anyone heard of this before? I've owned 8 different Pentax SLR's and haven't had this problem. thanks. -keith5. From : Rhu YK (email@example.com)

Prices for used LX in Korea is still very high. I like this camera and I have been using it for the last 15 years. Very reliable and almost never giving me any problems at all. Highly recommmended for all users.6. From : globetrotter (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Robert - the Pentax AF280T can be used in TTL mode by using it on the Pentax hotshoe grip. Five different AF280T flash guns can be used at the same time - all with TTL control.7. From : PentaxLXer (email@example.com)

Unfortunately, the world of 35mm photography has never agreed upon a universal standard for flash, 35mm, or more importantly lens mount. That was a commercial decision in order to enable individual 35mm SLR camera manufacturers to stay afloat all these years. Your OM 280T flash was a latest model which enable cameras like OM-3Ti and OM4Ti to synchronize at ALL shutter speeds in TTL mode with the above two OM flagship cameras models (more ?). With other OM bodies, it can only act as a normal TTL flash. Naturally, you cannot expect Olympus is kind enough to design a flash sync cord in order it can be used with a Pentax, Nikon or the Canons (vise versa) and still permits the best of Pentax technologies to be enjoyed by others. Solution ? Easy. Trade in your OM 280T (plenty of buyers...) and get yourself a Pentax dedicated flash on online outlets such as Ebay (www.ebay.com) or even the excellent free trade center (http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/ftz/index.php3) at this malaysian site!8.

I've just been given a Pentax LX with an AF-280T flashgun. From what the manual says this flashgun can only be used on-camera in TTL mode. I'm used to the OM system where similar flashguns can be used in TTL mode off-camera with extension cords. This is essential for the macro photography I use my cameras for. Is there any way to use this flashgun off-camera on an extension cord in TTL mode?9. From : Pierre (email@example.com)

I saw an LX in a dealer's the other day, but I couldn't see the selected aperture through the viewfinder. The shutter speed/meter indicator seemed to work okay on the right hand side of the viewfinder, but neither I or the dealer could see an aperture indicator. Looking at this web site, I see it should be displayed at the top of the viewfinder, but I think I looked up there (I was also looking at a Nikon F3 and that had all info at the top of the viewfinder). Is there any reason why the LX didn't seem to have this info - for example, an incompatible lens or viewfinder, etc?
Also, I'm not aware of what lenses are available for the LX, and if they will give good image quality (when compared to a Nikon/Contax/Leica etc). I would probably go for fast prime lenses (wide-angle to medium tele). Are there different 'series' of differing quality?
Any info would be appreciated
