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.

You can buy a Y2K grip (as well as a new Y2K LX body!) at: www.camera-direct.com

They have a lot of secondhand LX items on offer....but they've already sold the 135mm 1.8* I was after. Anyone got one?

They (camera-direct)have bought the entire stock of new LX equipment from Japan...or so they say..)

I own and use (beside many other lenses) a Pentax SMC 500mm F4.5 lens.
Has anyone tried, or ever used this particular lens? I would be interested to hear their views.

I will try to ask them if I can get some shots of the gold LX (I may even buy it!).

Regarding the Y2K LX, the original LX bodies allowed vertical connection of strap to the opposite side of grip (via two lugs) - so why do you need one extra lug at the grip?

Does anyone know where I can get the grip that goes with the LX Y2K - this has a lug at the side unlike the grips for the older LXs, so the strap can be attached to carry the camera horizontally. I'm assuming of course that this newer grip would fit on my vintage LX.
Thanks, Clive

Globetrotter: I am a co-maintainer of this website. See if the owner of the shop allows you to take some pictures of the camera and tell him appropriate cradit will also be given ·or may be even published his asking price here in this Website). I am sure the exposure and coverage is beneficial to him. Naturally, you have to help us to take some snaps. I think most of us would love to see one of these rare items on the web (I have just did my Pentax LX 2000 images for this site). Wel, here is a Gold plated vintage Nikon F2 that has just been surfaced: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/f2/variants/f2gold/index.htm

There is a GOLD PENTAX LX + gold 50mm 1.2 lens for sale in a UK camera shop. The lettering on the body is in black. The information that I have is that the lettering should only be in brown. Is this particular LX a fake, or did Pentax make a Gold version with black lettering??

I have just taken a much closer look at the MZS. It is very small and compact, and the build, especially the base, is very strong - better than the Z1p (although I am still wondering why the drive wasn't made faster in the MZS). I just might buy one to try; but not just...yet. I'm off on an expedtion next month, and will take my Z1p and trusty LX + manual & Autofocus lenses with me.

There are the odd rumours flying around about a possible LXII being made!!! Now that would get us all rushing to the shops....Mind you, seeing that its been more than 20 years since the original LX was born, I will not hold my breath while I wait for Pentax to release a new version at Photokina...

The only alternative to the motor drive as far as I know is the auto-winder.

This works great with the add on grip, good balance, but of course not as fast as the motor drive.

Is there any alternative for a Motor drive for LX ? The hand-gripless motor drive was really badly designed although I have no complaints over its performance. The tiny added on grip is not very well balance, strange, I thought they did a pretty good job on the slower drive designed for the M series bodies. By the way, a great site for information and references. It kept refreshes my memory of its launch during the early eighties !
