I am very happy with my MX-1. And the prices on the remaining stock has gone up over 50% since I purchased mine.

I love the shot of the goose. Today, while walking at lunch, I passed by a Canadian goose who was starring me down pretty severely as I passed by him/her at a distance of about 10 yards....Its impressive, how intimidating they can be when they have decided to stand their ground.

Still going strong after all these years, I need to use this camera more.

I was checking out my old posts, I'm very guilty of not posting anything in ages.

Nice thread to revive. You prompted me to pull my MX-1 off the shelf. I'd shot a lot with it last year, then put it aside while indulging an obsession with the Q system.

Getting reacquainted now, I'm remembering what a nice camera the MX-1 is to use. It may not be the perfect tool for absolutely every purpose, but what it does, it does very well, and is the only cam I own that has an articulating screen to encourage those high-up and down-low perspectives. I'll see what I can do with it this winter.

Great tones on your forest path picture!

Thanks Sluggo, the articulating screen was a revelation, I wish I had it on my D7200.

Okay here's my contribution: a handheld butterfly closeup from earlier today.



100% crop:



... and here's the cross-eye 3D version, for the people who are into that sort of thing.

All of which serves as a happy reminder of how capable the MX-1 is of supporting really satisfying easy macro work.

You can also hand it to a total stranger to take a photograph of four Pentaxians all gathered in one place. It is a great little camera.
