Hi from London

Hi all, been looking at the lens reviews quite a bit so though I'd join.

I'm a scot living in London and my first proper SLR cameras were secondhand Pentaxes, first an MV-1 and then an MX. In the 90s at Uni I moved on to a Canon T90 and, come digital progressed to their Eos range. However, I've always had a soft spot for the MX. I think it's the nicest little manual camera out there and was always disappointed that there just wasn't a proper equivalent in the Canon FD line.

Recently started shopping around for an MX on eBay and, with the low-ish prices on old Pentax stuff, one thing has led to another so I'm now back in the Pentax fold with an MX with winder, an LX, a couple 50s, a couple of zooms and a winder...

Nice! I keep hoping to stumble upon an MX or LX at a garage sale but no luck so far!

Welcome from Chicago!

Thanks for the welcomes, I am looking forward to shooting my new toys but need to get some them off to Asrepairs done first - new foam on the MX and a full service on the LX as it's got 'sticky mirror'

In the meantime I have added SMC-A 28-70, 70-210 and 135/2.5 lenses so I'll have a full kit to play with!
