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 have a Pentax ME (SLR) camera with a 1:1.4 50 mm lens, I purchased while stationed in Korea in 1978, that I would like to sell. This camera hasn't been used very much and is in mint condition. Other accessories include a Kiron 80-200mm f/4 Macro zoom lens and a Vivitar Auto 215 Electronic Flash. The camera comes with a carrying case and strap and all other small accessories for cleaning, etc. Anyone interested in this possible collector's item(s) please send an e-mail.

Since I am unable to find a new LX, today I looked at a used one.
With a 50/1.4 M lens on it it made the viewfinder lighter and darker as you moved the aperture open and closed. I have used this same lens on my other pentax bodyies and the viewfinder brightness stays constant. Any ideas?

Hello,
Has anyone transplanted NiCads or NiMhs into a "dead" motor drive battery pack? If so, what, from where? I can't see spending $250 for a new one.
Thanks
Mike

Hi,

I've just bought by mail order a motor drive LX (as new) with the battery grip M (only fair condition although advertised as mint!!!), and now have the following question: When both the motor drive and the battery grip are switched on, is half-pressing the grip's shutter release button supposed to turn on the LX's meter? I was expecting it to function the same way as the button on my Winder MEII, but apparently it doesn't. The meter is turned on only after the first frame is fired, so I have to use the meter button or shutter release button on the LX body to turn on the meter before shooting, which is very inconvenient. Is this normal?

Thanks,
Mark

They stopped making the LX in July 2001. There may be new ones still available in Japan but I wouldn't know where. also, the price was extremely high from what people have told me.

I Have heard that the LX is still available new in Japan. If this is true, does anyone know how to get one in the USA? Are there
dealers in Japan who would sell and ship one here who speak English?
Thanks

I bought an LX on eBay several months ago. Originally I had been looking for a Nikon F3 because I thought it was the best camera ever made. I had known of the LX and knew it was good and similar to the F3 but, well it wasn't a Nikon. My only consideration for the LX was that I already had K-mount lenses since my previous cameras were Ricohs. Well, after buying the LX I must say that I am incredibly happy. It is fantastic. The one I got is in like new condition and the first exposure test was perfect. Being a nature photographer I normally use manual mode but automatic is great. As for comparisons to the F3? They are equals at least and the LX has as many accessories as it's nearest competitor.

Now all I need is the Motor LX, The FB-1 with FC-1, a TTL flash...
