So anyone else's feedback on the last day ?

Or is this thread already doomed to the history fate ?

I wish they can make a retro cam with that size and looks like that MX you're holding.

My tendinitis hurts. I beginning to need something lighter.
It's a very good idee, a retro cam with modern capacity and a special lens

There was the MX-1 a few years ago... and it came with a lens

And the K-01 had a retro design. It just wasn’t a retro camera design

Posted last night to 100 years Pentax, pentax MX in 1979 with the young photographer that I was then, always faithful 40 years later!
That was the same year I got my first Pentax - an ME SE. Unfortunately, I had to dump it a few years later when it got damp at Niagara and was never the same. It had 'proven itself' by then, so I got the "Super Program" on the left of my signature photo.

Fun to have something like this. Need to go sort through some old negatives and see what I can find. Probably have one with my ME Super doing something similar.

I have one of me working at a summer job in 1966, but no camera. My job was unloading a film dryer. If you can imagine standing at the throat of a dryer {hot air blowing at me, summer in non-a/c building}. The main contents of my lunch was several salt tablets.

Sounds like you could wipe your brow, squeeze the rag into your cup, and be on your way! Making me think of putting down tar paper roofing in near 100 degree temps on summer break. Another motivator to look for other ways to earn money.
