Here's my latest (bought from forum member Colton (thanks, Colton!):




I bought a K to M42 adapter so that's my Super Takumar 55/1.8 attached. The camera is in really nice shape and I'm looking forward to using it! I learned photography on a K1000 and my other film camera is a Spotmatic SPII so it feels very familiar.
Nice the KM is a great body, Enjoy!

That's a sweet looking KM Kerry
Hope you enjoy it.
BTW, of all the manual film cameras I've bought, except for a LNIB ME, that KM was in the best condition.

I was checking out that KM in the marketplace, too - looks like a nice one! Glad it found a good home - enjoy

Very nice! Your KM is the camera the Spotmatic would have been in K-mount and has all the features missing from the K1000 and for less money on the current market too!

The current state of screwmounts in the house:



R-L: SV, H2, Spottie, Spottie, Spottie II, ESII

15 Taks: the reflection on the rings makes a couple hard to read, on the left is a 105mm 2.8 and on the right is a 35mm f2.

Thanks, everyone! So far I've really enjoyed the KM - took a few photos yesterday. I'll give it a good home, Colton!

I'll have to look around for some K lenses. Right now I have all Takumar M42 mounts - 55/1.8, 50/1.4, 35/3.5, and 135/3.5. I'd like a 28mm I think.

Arjay - wow! What a great collection!

Well I posted on another forum about a P30n I found in a charity shop and as a result a kind member came by my house and gave me a Pentax P30n with Pentax case, 28-80mm lens and instruction manual for free! My first ever SLR was a P30t which was stolen years ago at uni so I cannot tell you how happy I am right now!

In addition I've already got an SMC-M 50 f/1.7 and SMC-M 28 f/2.8 which I'm looking forward to using on the P30.

I'm returning the favour by fixing the stuck aperture blades on his Oly Trip 35.

I got into photogrpahy at the age of 20, my grandad picked up two film slrs form a carboot. One Nikon FM2 and one Pentax P30 for me and my older cousin. Myself thinking I was the cooler one one of us opted for the Nikon and felt quite smug...until we got our first film developed and noticed my images lacked something compared to my cousins. His seemed more saturated, and I kept my jealousy to my self.

14 years later I still have the FM2 But I use...

Pentax K200d
Pentax ME Super
My cousins P30

smc A 50mm 1:1:7
smc M 50mm 1:1:7
smc M 28mm 2:8
smc M 135mm 3:5

Any other time you cannot pickup stuff at KEH as they don't have a sales counter so I took advantage of the KEH in-house buying event and picked up my fastest lens to date. The LX deserved it . . .

In-house buying event? Unfair

Next time, let the rest of us know and we will give you a shopping list!

I am sure mailing out the shopping list after the purchase would have been epic!
Yeah that EX condition lens matches the EX condition LX I bought from them a couple of years ago just fine
