But can it be found in a thrift store for $3? Or $5 like my Leica?

Just messin around (although the prices are true). I honestly pay more attention to the P&S cams at St. Vinny's since the SLRs get snapped up quick. No one cares about the P&Ss. Still mad that I missed out on a $25 Yashica T4 on Craigslist

Definitely on the lookout for anything Pentax where ever I go.
Actually, I saw a UC-1 today for $6 - and it was in a St Vincent De Paul! I left it there (already have 2), but picked up a mint Super Program with Pentax A50/1.7 and Sigma 75-210/3.5-4.5 for $45. There was a Yashica TL Electro too, and a Ricoh CP-4 - figured I'd leave them there till next Saturday...

Hahaha...the one store here has an Electro sitting for a couple weeks now...$20 in good shape with f/1.9 kit lens.

You should have picked the UC up...and turned it around on ebay!

I'll be stopping in the good store on Monday...hoping for the best...and coming out with an armfull of books

The Newest KX

QuoteOriginally posted by monochrome Quote
A former Pentax Rep I met on photo.net sent me a KX pewter belt buckle. As you ,may infer from my avatar, it is WAY too cool, but I can't find the image.

Wow a KX one too? Hmmmm...the only one out there now is the ME-not-Super...

You need to wear that...heck, I'm so tempted by the ME one even though it's like $25! I'm a geek like that and I love my belt buckles
Well, its the newest KX to me

Looks like we've got ourselves a poker game going here. Anyone else want to ante up?

That's great...and it's got the f/1.2 lens as well! The ME one had the f/1.7 version I think. Well...it's no longer on ebay so I can't check.
