[SOLD] Pentax LX CLA'ed

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax LX CLA'ed

Asking Price
REMOVED FROM SALE AND GIVEN TO MY STEPSON INSTEAD OF A MX
Item Description
This LX has been recently CLA'ed by Eric and copy of the invoice is attached further down the thread. There is some paint brazing and an impact ding on the viewfinder but it is otherwise in very good working condition specially mirror, focus screen,...all clear with no scratches or smudges. I have installed a new SC-21 focus screen to replace the old scratched one.

I will also provide:
1) a machine made aluminium grip as found on eBay that balances the LX very well for longer lenses
2) a SD-11 focus screen for macro (which I do not do) not in top shape but still very functional
3) a spare SC-21 focus screen scratched (provided just in case as a backup) that was originally in the LX but that I replaced with a new one
4) Domke strap with the LX lugs
This should get you going...

I have several LXs but decided to sell one to help finance my K collection.

Cheers,

Luc

Pictures included in the original post.
Copy of Eric's invoice attached.
Everything detailled on the invoice has been fixed in addition to the CLA.

Thank you.

Just to clarify any misunderstanding:
The camera has been fitted with a brand new SC-21.
I am also providing two extra focus screens in bad condition just as a backup (Sd-11 macro, Sc-21 scratched).

Cheers,

Luc

Very nice user kit. How did you like the machined grip?

It is very good inasmuch as you just forget that it is there and the camera is well balanced and comfortable. This is even more so on longer/heavier lenses.
If I am just taking the camera for a walk around with let say a 30/2.8 then I feel like I am carrying extra weight compared to a Grip B.
As usual everything is a trade off

Cheers,

Luc

Inasmuch as the LX did not fly of the shelve even at this price :ugh: and that to my delight my stepson has decided to get a little bit more into film photography and come out shooting with me as soon as he finished his exams, I have decided to forget about money and spoil the kid with a nice kit
He is very excited to get a LX instead of the MX I have been loaning him.


Cheers,

Luc
