Here's one of my better images from that lens.
Good shot with a telephoto. Tripod?

After trying an MX, I decided to try its bigger brother too. Came with this lens (and a K45-125), and while it was away for its Eric CLA I found the designated hood.

The KX is a very nice camera, I prefer it to the MX, though the viewfinder on the MX is much better.

Never had one before, but that has changed ... LX, grip & winder ... the 77; I already had it ... it's amazing to me how big and heavy the winder is ... wow! J

The winder is a little heavy, but I like the way it works. I also like that it makes the shutter release much lighter than a standard LX, making it easier to hand hold in low light, and the weight makes it even more stable.

Salut unix,

Thanks for your post and I like it, too ... I had never held/shot before with a winder equipped LX ... I briefly used one long, long ago, but without the grip ... I'm happy to have one for my own use now J

This is like in the movies when the little kid has the big bully come up behind him....the bully blocks out the sun and towers over the little kid Cool photo, love the gradient and reflection.

Thanks. Your idea of a Auto 110 in there as well would be really cool too.

It's like David vs. Goliath of the film world. Cool photo of the two squaring off.
