Fell in love with Pentax LX

Many years ago, my wife saw me drooling over ad for Pentax LX . ( What a fantastic engineering marvel the LX was) It was my surprise Xmas gift and first Pentax.. More film Pentax and lenses followed. My first and only digital is K10D. Now I'm drooling over buying a K1-II. Have "snowbird" month trip to Costa Rica in Jan 2020. Will use 45 year old workhorse Tokina ATX 28-70, Sigma APO 105-400 and possibly ATX 90 macro for birds, night walks frogs etc, and night time green sea turtles. Will need a new wide for the K1-II. ------ I am now converting to high quality digital some 70+ years of backpacking, world travel, and family film and slides to digital. ------ Hello everyone. - Tom

Welcome from Canada. I loved the LX too but had to wait 33 years for mine. It's still an engineering marvel. I drool about the K1ii also and I had better get it soon...don't have another 33 years.

Welcome, I've still got a couple of LXs about the place, IMHO still some of the finest Pentax engineering moments.

G'day mate and welcome to the forum

The LX is a camera I've had my eye on for a while now, haven't made up my mind, but I reckon it would go well with a set of fast A series primes.
