Last week I put a low-ball bid in on a K2DMD and sort of forgot about it. Imagine my surprise when I checked my email to find an invoice!!

. . .
It has been a while since I got that lucky. Congrats!

My current workhorse isn't even a Pentax at all. It's a Chinon CG-5. It's got DOF preview, AE lock (which I never use, as it doesn't have spot metering), aperture priority with a dial for changing speeds as opposed to the ME Super's annoying gotta-be-looking-through-the-viewfinder buttons, and a finger grip. Comes in black, but it's bigger than the ME (of course), and, of course, the finder isn't as bright - but nothing's as bright as the ME's finder.
Good point to remember using spot metering and AE lock. I keep forgetting to use the option, with all the other things there are to think about in photography

It must be quite frustrating to be $150 away from having a nice LX.

I bought mine from KEH for a very good price, assuming it would need CLA.
Though it seemed okay when it arrived, I sent it to Eric Hendrickson anyway.
Only this way could I be confident it will work reliably for many years to come.
If I bought from KEH, Adorama, B&H; I would expect a fully functional camera. (Depending on the condition of cause). Eric isn't in my neck of the woods anyway

Hi,

For Miserere who put the duct tape where the mirror bumper foam was, how did that end up working for you? I might be getting an LX soon and would want to work any sticky mirror issues out via homebrew methods...
Best, Andre

The angle of the mirror is so sensitive in the LX, I'd just send it to Eric. Now is the time to get an LX overhauled, while Eric can get the parts.
