Should I say "Congrats ! " ?

Nice selection you have there .

I notice the cold shoe . I bought the same one for 3 bucks ! I wonder how long that thing staying in the back of the store ?

Very nice KX indeed !

Yes, there are some decent NOS treasures sitting in the back, sometimes.

Today, I realized that I don't know how to use the KX!!! I took it to Manhattan... and struggled with the metering. First I had to remember to leave the wind lever out - not great being a lefty eye - and then I'd invariably go for the DOF button on the front (a la ST605) and wonder why the meter didn't work. Oh, duh, I have to push the shutter release...

Well, maybe not insane, but a bit weird.

I take the collection out now and then, but I haven't played checkers with it yet.
I know a guy close by who has a complete set of autofocus pentax, maybe I can play my manual focus against his?

This thread makes me want to get a KX too.. but as you can see from my signature, I already have 6 bodies. I just bought a Super A body on Sunday, heh. The 50/1.7 M is a fantastic lens, I have two of them
