I have one of the those Pentax LX stickers. I dare not stick it to anything! K.

Please tell me you use that beautiful 600 on a 6x7, rather than wasting its capability by shooting it with 35mm exclusively.

Yes for sure! I have a K500/4.5 and K1000/8 for my 35mm cameras, so no need to use different format lenses.
This guy will only be used on my 6x7, 67 & 67II bodies. Just have to wait for the rain to stop before I get to try it out.

Yes it's heavy at 6kg, so a big tripod is in order.

I went to the photo club swap at Aulnay (France) this morning and picked up a few Pentax things quite cheap ... a working nice ME with a M 50/1.4 was 10, but the lens has "cleanable" fungus issues. The working SP 500 with S/Tak 55:2 was 10 also ... with the 5 flash shoe thrown in as a freebie.

The LX stickers and 3 manuals (in English, go figure ?!) were 3 total. All from the same seller.

Picked up a lot of other goodies, too. Happy camper overall. Worth the 2.5 hour round trip. (xpost)

A few snaps of this small club swap ...
Nice score!

There was supposed to have been a camera swap meet in my local but it was cancelled due to weather as it was outdoors. Your small club swap looks much larger than ours!

Before they go back in their respective cases and bags, here is my family of "Heavy Metal" Pentax's before they went all plasticy. The only one missing is my LX which is getting a service at the moment.
Again moving from left to right, (back row) is... Sa1, SV with Asahi light meter, Spotmatic, SP1000 in brown snakeskin, (middle row) two Spotmatic F's, KX, K1000 SE in brown, (front row) ME super, ME super in black, ME-F with Auto Focus lens and lastly the ME.

Did you do the snakeskin on the SP1000 yourself?

Even more so now that I saw what I paid for my 50mm f1.2 . . .
And what I paid for a Canon-emasculated K35/2 - and Eric to restore it.

Ha, "emasculated."

It always flummoxes me that the most inconsequential scratch to a vintage lens will drop its value tremendously, yet people are apparently perfectly willing to saw/grind/file the rear mounts of $500+ Pentax lenses at the drop of the hat to fit them on their precious EF bodies. I guess the glass is just that good!

I would love if you could maybe do a good scan/flat photograph of one of the LX stickers.
My father has a rather lovely display of Pentax gear, and I know he'd love (even reprint) of one of those LX stickers for the display.


You seem to have some pretty amazing camera markets over there.
