Aw, man! Reading this thread is making me nostalgic for my film days! I own a silver K2, K2DMD, and black MX, all purchased new. The K2DMD was my daily shooter. I got around the small size of the MX by attaching the motor drive. I would sometimes remove the batteries and just use it for the improved grip. My cameras look nothing (condition-wise) like the K2 [B]Barabas[B] has. That one looks untouched! The only thing missing is the little plastic double dust cap for the flash sync sockets! I suppose I should get mine out and see how they are doing...

I got my K2 back from Eric last week, and I'm enjoying a sort of second honeymoon. I'm thinking it may live a long happy life, full of Tri-X.

As usual, after being Eric-ed, it looks and functions just like it should.

Good news and enjoy!

Ha! They happened, all right! I have thousands of Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides to prove it!

Here they are in all their brassy, dusty glory:

They all work well, but need the usual new foam gaskets and bumpers. I managed to keep the little double flash sync cover on the MX, since it was protected from snagging, I guess.

I still have my K2 DMD, I bought it when I develop film for Color Craft in the mid ''70s.remember how expensive it was, everyone thought I was crazy.
I love that camera, such a solid build and great feel with large hands. I remember buying film by the case and keeping it in the freezer.


Good times, had that camera with me all the time!
