My first Pentax ever -- a nice ME Super that I bought a couple weeks ago and a Pentax-M 1.7 prime lens that just came in yesterday. Still need to get batteries and a lens cap, and clean the viewfinder, lens, and mirror (and buy Tri-X).

^^^Congrats!!! That's a great way to start...the ME Super is an amazing camera. Download the manual from Butkus if you don't already have it, and explore all the features of a really great camera. You're gonna love it! Looking forward to some swamp pics.

The ME super, and normal ME, are probably my favourite Pentax cameras of all time.

They just have a near perfect combination of reliability, size, simplicity, speed, and price.
The only thing I sometimes wish my ME had was the ability to manually choose the shutter speed, which the ME super fixed.

You've made a great first choice.

Today returning from work I found this nice pack:



Let's check it out what's inside...oh a nice box:



Perhaps inside the box there's something interesting...let's look inside:



So, an 85 mm f2.0, caps, hood, and a card with the serial number....let's chek it out how it does look on my LX:



The multicoating is nice, there's a lot of dust tough, even inside.



However it's very luminous.



Looks cool on my LX...the scariest thing is that this 85 mm is slightly longer than a 50 mm f1.4, same diameter etc...was it a good purchase for 97?

I paid 125 for mine a few years ago, and until now I've never seen one cheaper. Mine has very little inner dust though.

It's a wonderful lens, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Wow! Score!
The hood for the 85/2 will work perfectly on the 50/1.4, so you can carry one hood for both lenses.

The lens alone normally sells for that. I was very pleased to get mine fort 95 which I considered a big bargain. To get all the rest as well, definitely a good buy. K.
