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.

Hi, I'd appreciate if anyone could share their experience of using the T1, T2 and T3 fronts with the LX, which lenses do they work with? Especially compatibility with the AF lens 28-105 3.2-4.5 is of interest. I'd appreciate any help, Sven Norberg

Skins. Since 2000, if your LX leatherette is wearing, consider alternative skins. It can be akin to the trend of changing skins for web and computer audio-video players. See http://cameraleather.com/ --Jay

Mico, My computer had a virus and lost all e-mail files. Please e-mail me your private address, if possible. I am happy to see you interfacing on this site once more. I appreciated so much the black and white photography you attached to your then recent e-mails to me, prior to losing that data. You complete the technical and mechanical resource provider needs of this site. And your photography shines.

Tony seems somewhat divided between here and the Nikon F5 page. Feel free to comment on any inquireis of anyone anytime. --Jay

Hello again: I just ran my manuals2go.com Pentax LX Service Manual and since it uses Adobe Acrobat Reader it does provide for the ability to zoom in. Especially handy when reviewing the very busy parts illustrations. I double checked their web site and there is, of course, no charge for a download version and very modest postage charges for the CD and printed versions.

Hello everyone. I too obtained a CD version of the Pentax LX Service Manual from manuals2go.com via eBay and agree that the quality is excellent. It includes the 66 page factory service manual, 3 page Exploded Parts Illustration and 27 page parts list. If printed to a laser printer, the rendition is excellent and crisp. It can be ordered directly from them in either a CD version or download version for $9.99 or a hard copy can be obtained from them for $13.99. If I remember correctly (I haven't used it in a while as I printed a hard copy as soon as I got the CD) one can zoom in and out for a closer view of the parts illustrations. All one has to do is visit their web site @ manuals2go.com or you can email them at mark@manuals2go.com. Good luck!

I purchased a LX service manual at manuals2go.com via ebay. It's scanned and converted into .pdf but in good quality, I've printed it with 600 dpi and it's fine, especially the exploded views.

I need to get a service manual for my LX. There are several listed on eBay, but often these are poor scans/reproductions of the original manual. Has anyone purchased one of these and if so, is there a particular seller that sells good quality manuals, reprint, CD-ROM, or other?
