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.

So nice that I can now get more bucks for my pound! Even nicer the fact that I'm off to USA again next week, and those Sterling Pounds will enable me to buy loads of more goodies at cheaper prices...

Buy a "new" 1981 LX for more than £1,000?...No Way! I'd rather keep watching for mint versions going ultra-cheap on Ebay...or buy 'job-lots' and sell off all the gear I don't need to just fund the actual item I want to keep (if you get my drift?).

This sort of sale can often provide you with useful 'playthings':

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=15240&item=3831736794&rd=1

Not 'mint items of course, but I'm sure buying such a collection of LX gear for $1,000 is far better than buying a new LX for $3,000!

You can't always get what you want, but sometimes, if you look hard enough,... you can get all that you need.

£1650 (sterling) = $3000.19 (USD) = $3957.55 (Canadian Dollars), as of about 6 minutes ago. Tempting (subject to provenance), had I the cash right now - yes, I can hear the "me too" echo. - Ian.

Hi. The MV series was a simplified version of the ME series cameras, as was the MG series. For a manual go to the website, http://www.pentaxusa.com/docstore/index.cfm?show=6. It was as well built as any from the era, using metal parts now replaced by plastic, and a good light meter--but offered almost no information in the viewfinder, or on the body, because of completely automatic exposure making decisions as made by the camera. Though LX photographers generally make exposure decisions based on the interrelationships between aperture and shutter speed, and full and available information in the finder, the optics used by the MV series are also used by the LX. --Jay
