I wasn't even born when it came out, so... nope.
My first SLR was the K-30, and now I'm working with the lovely film cameras, so the LX is on my wish list. (emphasis on wish here )

The only reason I had one at a young age was because I was in the military which had lower prices and no tax. My second was purchased off-base used.

from everyone that got their LX brand new? I bought my first at age 20.
I bought mine new when they first came out, as a "carry-around" camera when I wanted to leave my Leicas at home. The Leicas had a long rest!
