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.

Tony, sorry to hear about your recent loss.
Long Lenses. A friend of mine asked me if I might be interested in helping out with some passive surveillance work (law enforcement, nothing sinister). Most of my glass is wide, ultra-wide or normal, my 100mm f/2.8 macro A-series being my longest lens. Can you guys recommend the glass I should be looking for. I'd of course love to have something fast (2.8) but I doubt I'll have the funds. What non-superfast Pentax lenses should I be looking for? 200 -300 - 400mm. Oh, and of course the mirrors (cats). (btw, I'm now living in the USA). Many thanks - Ian.3. From : Kakaman (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Sorry to hear that Globetrotter - it's our worst nightmare, I'm sure. To insure or not to insure is a tough one, you figure that in five years time you'll have spent the same on insurance as the gear costs and also there are so many exclusions.
I'm sure the Universe will compensate you with a wondeful gift, I feels it-a-coming to you.

No, our equipment wasn't insured, as it just costs too much to insure all that pro equipment for numerous expeditions. 8-bags with about £15,000 worth of pro video and SLR cameras, DSLRs and underwater cameras and lenses were taken...even though we parked next to two police cars, and even a uniformed security guard (who must have been part of the crime) stood watching the vehicle!
I now need to find the money to buy back all the stolen goods…
At least I was lucky in that my main LowePro bag filled with Pro camera system including many lenses – 300mm f/2.8, 600mm f/5.6 etc, and another large Kata bag filled with Canon XL2 pro video equipment was not taken…at least the gods were watching over some of my prized investments!

Tony, sorry to hear about that... I too hope you were insured, and also know firsthand how much work goes into sourcing some of the pieces should you have to reconstruct a total system.
Did you lose LX stuff? If so, do you intend to try replacing it? Last couple of years, I've followed what excellent-to-mint condition LX gear is going for on eBay; it nearly always goes for more than I'd be willing to (or have) bid. Hopefully this misfortune doesn't spell LX obsolescence for you. Ivan8. From : Philip Ashman (firstname.lastname@example.org)

That's awful news about the theft Tony and I do hope your Insurance will cover the losses, although it's no real consolation for the stress and work required in getting the right replacements, plus of course the sense of invasion on your belongings, privacy and space.
The Cobra head is indeed very sturdy, well made and does support big lenses with ease. It may well indeed run to a camcorder with a big lens and the freedom/ease of use it gives is amazing. You do, however, have to have a lens plate as well for each lens in order to attach it to the supplied quick release head and the websites list which plate for the various popular big lenses. I easily found the right plate listed for the Sigma 500 4.5, but they don't actually list any Pentax at all. So, I emailed them and they replied immediately and asked me for the tripod collar dimensions on the 300mm 2.8 (L x W). They then told me which plate I needed to use for it. Excellent customer service.

Nice work, Ivan....and congratulations on finally getting some photos of a wild mountain lion. Persistence always pays off in the end!
I also use beam-breakers (made by a French company) a lot with my LX equipment. I also now use infrared releases a lot with my F5 system.
Congrats with the Cobra head, Philip. I've never used one but have often thought about buying one, or the similar Wimberly version. I wonder if it would work with a big lens and my XL2 camcorder.
Talking about buying equipment…I need to buy a lot now…because the van got broken into in Spain this last weekend and many thousands of £-pounds worth of equipment was stolen!
