Interesting to see…. my first was the immortal ME Super. Where did these two come in? After the ME Super?

IIRC the M bodies started in 1977, Then the ME Super was released a couple years later. I bought my MX in 78-79.
The P bodies started in late 80's I think, and I bought mine Mid 90's.
I bought both my SLR bodies New in box with 50mm lenses, the MX came with a f:1.7, and the P30t came with a f:2.

These are not the original cameras I purchased new, I had to sell the MX in the 80's, and I bought the P30t to replace it, and ended up selling it as well in the early 00's.
I bought both these from ebay a few years ago for nostagia after I got my *ist DL.

Such cool cameras, they've got such a strong look to them. Easy to trust, however weird that may sound. I love my analog slr (not a Pentax though, I'm not as loyal as you haha)

I am not all that loyal myself.
I also have two Ricoh bodies, and two medium format cameras. One is a Lubitel TLR (russian toy camera), and a Moscow 5, a 120 roll film 6x9 rangefinder.

I also JUST purchased a Yaschica TLR That shoots 120 roll film for $175! I liked the Lubitel for the 6x6 format and the extreme detail in the large negative. The LOMO effects and operation are not so endearing, so I decided to bite the bullet and move up.

What kind of SLR do you use?
