My friend brought me back a slightly smaller Pentax MX from Hong Kong

I can even attach it to my hotshoe!

The vending machine apparently also had the Pentax K1000, Pentax K-x, and Pentax K-5. I probably would have spent a few dollars on it.

I got one of those out of a vending machine too. I was hoping the K-5 would drop out, but I do the real MX so I wasn't really disappointed.

They're on ebay if you want to opt for a choice. Can't seem to get away from them when searching for old cameras but seeing the 2nd pic I get it. So cool!

I have the one for K-5 (or was it Kx), anyway "mini-me" is awesome. However, I no longer use the mini-me as it tends to get bumped off from time to time and can be annoying in the field.

That's really cool, off to search eBay to see what's out there, as Hong Kong not on this weeks travel itinerary.

I got some of these in Japan.
They have both the silver and blac k5 and k7.
Pretty cool. Think the MX are the best.

Just asked my friend. He said Megabox Mall, about a 10 minute walk from Kowloon Bay Station. I'm not sure what that means, but good luck!
