I have the same one, but the parallax-corrected model! It's a beautiful camera, long and slim and amazingly well built.

I've got a number of bodies, but this will be my prize m42 body:



Just stumbled upon it and planning on sending it to Eric for a check-up/CLA.
It appears that the previous owner only used the neck strap attached to the case (not the body) so very little wear/brassing.

ME Super - Haven't used it in a few years but I came across a roll of Kodak Gold 200 a few days ago while cleaning so I'm tempted to give it a whirl this weekend.

This'll be quick -

Pentax: ME bought here on the PF Marketplace - works great but I'm installing an Interslice light seal kit. ZX-M purchased locally from a craigslist seller looking to unload all his film gear. Just put new batteries & film in & trying it out now.

I also have a non-working Nikon N2000 body left over from my daughter's high school photography class.

I think today will be a film camera day, probably the Contax that is ready to go.
Yesterday, I went to drop a roll of Fujicolor 200 off around the corner at the large national chain drug store.

They no longer process film, nor would they send it out. But they still did a week or two ago when I bought some Tri-X there. Time to find another drug store, and shoot more film I'd say.

Well, according to my signature, I have a K2 and an MV1. The MV1 has a broken ASA dial. It's stuck on 200 and can be moved with a bit of effort. It just falls apart as soon as you pull the door release. Got that one for free with the 50/2. The K2 is in good condition (it's in my avatar), aside from some wear. I'd like to have one in better shape.

I really love the K2. It feels very solid and heavy. Much less flimsy than the MV1.

I have a few but the current favorite is the original Asahi Pentax that was just serviced by Eric to fully functional state! It so happens to be the camera of my birthyear too ;-)
