Absolutely not. And if unjustly accused I'll throw one of my 11-20 Pentax bodies at you!

If I accuse you, can you throw a KX at me? Gently though, please.

My problem with this poll is that there are no finer subdivisions above the "21 or more" landmark....

Starting with 5 KX and 5 Super A, you can imagine the rest, when it starts around the SV1a and ends with the MZ-6... plus the side shows like the Ricoh land (they DID make excellent cameras, so don't worry about the fututre) with 4 bodies altogehter or the Voigtländer crowd from the 60ties.

Ahh, and now about rangefinders of any time...

Please make sure my wife never reads this post!

I only have a set of Auto 110. It seems that there will be made a batch of film in 2012 from someone in Germany.

Not collecting, I am using all of them.

Reading these posts will make you feel a lot better. It is obvious that I am not the only one who enjoys working with Pentax.

naw mate, when you have 4 ME supers and 3 ME F's (great camera by the way) you are indeed a collector. though I guess we could come up wit a special name or acronym for it. you know so you don't have to feel dirty about it. its better accepted by the masses with a fancy name.

Thanks guys... Obviously the Supers and ME Fs are very close to each other as far as operations, specs and abilities go.. you could say I'm stuck on them.. I do love my Super Programs though. A few of the cameras are getting to be in need of CLAs; the problem is choosing which to send in first.

Funny story though, I'd planned on sending in one of the ME Fs first because for some reason the little chirping stopped a while back. (The ME Fs have and audible when you are focused) So I'm playing with it the other night and find out the second one had stopped it's audibles too. My wife says "what are you doing? that thing's driving me nuts". I questioned that and she says "that infernal chirping". I can't hear it. I can't hear it on either one even when listening closely.. Go figure. Maybe I need a CLA.

Yes the joys of getting older, nice story!

Did you listen to loud music in your youth? Sit too close to speaker stacks? That's my excuse.

I always have to think about it a bit. K1000, KX, ME, ME, MZ-5n, 645, Program Plus. It always feels like I'm forgetting a body but I don't want to pull them all out at once to check. I am trying to cut down on buying random bodies because I don't own one yet on the theory that in the longer term the same body will probably just show up with a lens.

Yeah, I listened to loud music in my youth and am told I still do.... It just doesn't sound loud anymore (evidently).

Part of it is spending almost 8 years on aircraft carriers. 3 of those years my rack was right below the #3 arresting wire. It got a bit noisy sometimes.
