My list are all Pentaxes except the last (which I haven't used yet as there's something weird in the VF). All acquired since January.

MZ30
P30N
P30
ME Super
MX
KX
SP1000
SP500
Praktica MTL3

Apart from Pentaxes, I am spending an increasing amount of time eyeing-up OM SLRs and Mamiya 645s...

I don't really intend to collect film bodies, but I've picked up a few due to my LBA.

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic
Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic
Pentax ME Super
Pentax P30T

And my original K-mount that served me well for years (although not a true Pentax)...

I have a long list:

-Pentax: ME, ME Super (2), ZX-L (2)
-Nikon: N2000 (2), N80, FE2
-Canon: AE-1 Program (2), AV-1, A-1
-Olympus: OM-1n, OM-2n, OM-10
-Minolta: SRT-101, X-700, XG-M, X-370, Maxxum 70 QD
-Contax: 139Q, 137MA, Aria, NX (the one I use most now)
-Yashica: FR-II, FX-3 Super 2000, 230 AF, 300 AF, Electro 35 GS, FX-103 Program, FX-D Quartz (2), 109 MP, T4 Zoom (a great p&s!)
-Kodak: Retina Type 118, Retina I Type 126, Retina II Type 011
-Voigtlander: Vito B, Vito BL
-Zeiss Ikon Contina (I think it's a IIa, got to check it out...)

Most of them I've gotten over the past few years from Ebay as they date from my youthful days and were the ones most popular that I drooled over reading Pop Photo. I wanted to get and use them while available. I have two of some, with one body intended as a spare or for parts...

I started with Yashica/Contax, and when they closed, started going to Minolta only for them to close about a year later; and now here I am at Pentax. I hope the albatross following me is dead or something!
Rescued a Minolta XD-11 not long ago, and in the past week (paid list price too) saved a 35-70mm Contax MM zoom, and a 80-200mm Contax MM zoom from getting chopped to fit Canon EOS. They'll go on my C/Y bodies as intended. New in box, sitting tucked away in a display case's storage area. The XD came with a 50mm f1.4.

MX
K1000
Sportmatic (on the way)

The MX was my first SLR. I do like the K1000 better. The needle meter and larger VF are easier for me to use. But i love the smaller size of the MX.

Can't wait for my Spotmatic tho!

I think I did this list some time ago, but may have added a few since then. I'll just list my Pentax film bodies.















For a full listing of all my film cameras take a look at Chemical Cameras

Contax RTS II
Isn't that one of the cameras that focuses by moving the film plane (possibly also the pressure plate) to focus??

An impressive collection.

And to those not all that familiar with camera history... There's even a few cameras pictured that look about as original (or even strange) as a K-01. Naturally some of the Nikon F variants. But since it was before the internet, not many people really complained about the designs of the cameras

Not to my knowledge. It is an SLR with lens focus. In fact, the lenses can be adapted to Pentax cameras.

I think that was the Contax AX, first attempt to do auto-focus using C/Y lenses.
Didn't quite work I suppose. They later did the N mount in the N series for autofocus (I have an NX).
