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.

Kenneth, the LX System is of a modular design. If you want a grip, with or without the motor-drive attached, simply add one. Grip-B being standard and Grip-A being physically customisable. Cool huh? - Ian.5. From : Miki (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Hi all. I've just been offered a mint Sigma 28-70 f/2.8 EX Aspherical. I like the handling and layout. I intend to test it with a D*ist against my Pentax 35-105 f/3.5, which I know won't be conclusive, but quick. Any knowledge on this Sigma? Thanks - Ian.7.

Thanks for the hospitality. One question though, why the Motor drive has no hand grip ?? Most of other brands has a convenient grip. Next, any other third party labels that can also perform the TTL metering ?? Sorry for such dump questions.10.

Welcome aboard, Kenneth! Don't forget to look throughout this site, not only Pentax, but ALL cameras and lenses. I think Leo and MIR have done a fantastic job of offering hard-to-find information on most top classic camera systems. Enjoy your new-found classic - the superb LX, Kenneth, and don't forget to relay your findings or questions to this forum.
