Item Description
Now this is a stunner... my Highland Games Edition (kilt not included) Pentax LX. Ok, there never was such an addition but d@mmit there should have been!
Escape from the world of boring all black cameras. Shield your eyes from the gold plated editions. Feast your senses on this technicolor masterpiece!
The camera was given a full service by Eric Hendrickson last year - invoice will be included - so no issues with this baby. No dents/dings, just surface patina that shows it has been loved and used. Everything works correctly. I find this camera noisier than my F3s, or Leica Rs, or Minolta XK. This is splitting hairs because SLRs are not quiet, but I'm letting you know my hot take on it.
Exposures are perfect but as it uses a center weighted (avg?) pattern, it's up to you, the professional user (this is a professional camera after all..) to determine if you are dealing with a back-lit condition etc and adjust forthwith.

Comes with 2 finger grips - the OEM and a bulkier 3D printed one. The OEM allows you to still use the self timer when attached, the 3D does not but some find gives better purchase on the camera.

Comes with the Pentax Winder - works perfectly. And all the body caps that cover the winder holes on the camera are present and correct. When you take them off the camera, you attach them to the winder which is neat.

Comes with the super 50mm 1.4 SMC-A lens (serviced by Eric), and the even more super Tamron SP 35-80 in P/PKA mount lens which I picked as apparently it is the best zoom lens in that range you can get for the Pentax.

So... custom LX fully serviced with 2 grips, winder, 50 1.4 and 35-80 lens.
$500 + shipping. I'm guessing $30 because this will go in a large flat rate USPS priority box plus will need extra insurance.

Peace!
Huss

p.s. comes with box and owner's manual.

Well "plaid" sir, another bump for an LX that has certainly earned its stripes!

This is very tempting and my wife would absolutely kill me. What part of California are you in?

That’s a great price for an iconic LX! This camera will be worth as much as HCB’s M3 in a few years

It's no coincidence that Tesla named the highest performing stock sedan ever built "the plaid."

Is that because they wanted to be as fashionable as this camera?

Yes. That's what I quoted above.

My other comment was meant facetiously.
