Been shooting Pentax since the 70s and now use a K-5 as well as occasionally, the film cameras indicated below. I still have my MX from 1977...
The film camera collection takes a little dusting!
Wow, sounds like architecture! I'd like to see that wall...

More modest than some, but great stuff:
ME Super (wife's)

My first SLR was a Spotmatic F, stolen in Brooklyn in about 1982... Loved it, and have thought about finding another nice one.

Well just for the record, yesterday I came across a black spotmatic in beautiful condition and the shutter worked fine. The only problem was some mold marks on the shutter curtain. I seriously considered buying it and sending it to Eric but in the end my wiser side won out... I already have three spotmatics!!! Sometimes resisting the temptation actually feels good, although that 645 I picked up last week was a tiny exception...

I've got a spotmatic F stored nicely in my cupboard. Only for display, though.

I'm using a K1000, m42 adapter, and a nice Takumar 50mm f/1.4 screwmount.

Started with a pentax ME, then a couple of MXs, and finally an MZ-s, before going digital.

Could only lust after the LX when it came out!

It is. The ME Super is the smallest 35mm SLR with aperture priority, full manual control and the largest viewfinder.

I have owned many Pentax models. Some I sold or gave away.
Pentax bodies I currently own:

KX (x3)
P3N (x3)

My wife has Pentax K1000 and MX bodies.

I also own Nikon F2, Cosina Voigtlander Bessa R and Canon P camera bodies, plus a bunch of fixed-lens 35mm cameras.

Spotmatic F
Chinon CE Memotron
Chinon CM-3
Ricoh TLS401

ME Super x2
Super A
Chinon CE-5 x3
Cosina CT1 Super

And a load of other sundry stuff I've picked up in charity shops or auctions over the last 18 months. It really is an addiction. I do use all of them though, even the most precious. There's no point in buying a great machine and just looking at it.

My Pentax Collection:
SV - shutter issues and scuffed mirror
Spotmatic - meter inop., shutter issues, and missing bits
Spotmatic F - meter inop. and mirror sticks sometimes
ME Super
SuperProgram - has taken many falls and even after a local service meters funny, but it was my first camera and has been in my family since new
SF1 - mirror stuck up and makes pained whirring noises
ZX-5n - been meaning to sell, *ist is replacing it
*ist - just got it

Canon SureShot delSol - solar powered p+s 32mm f3.5
Canon SureShot A-1 - (was) waterproof but one of the film door latches snapped right after I got it, ex-sheriff's dept. camera
Minolta Weathermatic 35DL - think water got past the seals last summer at the lake and killed it
Olympus Infinity II - weatherproof 35mm f2.8 p+s

I really want a Contax G1 kit someday.

Current for me:

Spotmatic II
MX (2)

My wife has an ME Super that I want to send to Eric for CLA, she no longer uses it, but I might... These are all great bodies! I just sold an MZ-S as I did not use it, and love the others. The LX to me is just great in the hand.
