Item Description
Selling my favourite camera after the LX, but am no longer using it. Please have a good look at the photos - this is not a collector's item. It's been well used, and has lots of marks and scratches on it, especially the bottom plate. The MX winder is also well used and shows it. This combo has traveled a lot, so this is probably more for someone who loves the combo and would like to make the necessary repairs to it, or use it for spares. I am not the original owner of this, so no idea what its previous history was. I've deliberately lighted the images so that nothing is hidden, but somehow they still look better than the actual camera! Some dents in the prism housing don't appear that well in the images. Camera cap included.

The camera still works, and took accurate exposures the last time I used it a few years ago. The one thing that does not work is the self-timer, it seems to have disengaged and is just loose. I think that with a new top and bottom plate and light seals, and repair of the self-timer, the MX will still be good for quite a while.The winder behaves strangely, too. It will advance single frames a few times, and then suddenly it seems to disengage. The same with continuous frames, where it will take three or four shots with the button help down, and then starts going without triggering the shutter.

Hope someone wants this baby at this price!
