Pentax LX Gold Edition
by RobGeraghty, on Flickr

In 1981, Pentax made 300 LX cameras coated in 18 carat gold with what looks like crocodile leather trim.
This was displayed at the Pentax 100th anniversary event in Sydney.

How did you guess that it was a A50 F1.2 on it?
I know that camera came with a 50 F1.2 lens. They were made together. See here:

Pentax LX - Wikipedia

However I made a mistake, it's not an A lens but an SMC lens. My bad.

What a beauty, but yes I also would worry to walk around with that camera.

I'd prefer that the wildlife isn't scared away by the reflections off my shiny camera!
Good point

I wonder how much they went for at the time.
