Pentax LX Film Camera Body (2nd generation with max ASA 3200)

I am on market for a fully functional and in excellent cosmetic condition Pentax LX Body (later generation). I purchased 2 LX bodies on eBay within last 3 weeks, but had to return them because both of them were defective (one had sticky mirror issue and the other had defective ASA assembly). I am not interested if camera is not perfectly functional since cost of servicing LX cameras is very high and parts are not always readily available.

Cheers,

Dan from Boulder, CO

I have one of those. The last time I checked, it had no sticky mirror, and the seals were all serviced, along with replacement of the aperture follower resistor and ISO resistor assemblies at their last service (admittedly some time ago). I'll have to get batteries for it and run it through it's paces, but I am confident it is in excellent working condition. Give me a day to get this together and I will post some pictures of it for you, as well as check it with batteries to ensure everything is in good condition.

KEH listed LX Body in Excellent Plus Condition w/ Hand Grip and 6 months warranty for $369, so I decided to buy it. Thus, I am not anymore looking for LX body.
