Hi All!

I have a Pentax KX with the 40mm limited lens. I am exploring the new-old... meaning I might just buy a Pentax LX sometime soon. Looking forward to this forum!

Welcome! The LX is definitely a nice camera, just watch out for the so-called sticky mirror syndrome: the shock absorbers in the mirror box on the LX can deteriorate, become sticky and impair the movement of the mirror. It can be fixed but it would be nicer to find a body that has already been fixed, or which doesn't have that issue.
