That's a gorgeous looking Spotty! I have one just like it, including the lens, but I don't think mine is quite as clean as youors. Post pics when you got 'em. From the camera, not of the camera. ;-)
Thanks. I see you live in Houston. Maybe one Saturday or Sunday we could meet up with our Spotmatics and shoot something interesting.

The Leica Shop in Austria is selling this Black ES II Motor Drive kit for Ä1,200.00.

Also a SP Motor Drive for Ä1,800.00!!

Never seen ones like this before, pretty impressive!

Phil.
There is even one kit for sale on eBay. Maybe the same seller?

Cooltouch and MindtheMix, your collections (Pg 196) are awesome!

Here are my K1000 and ME.

Leicashop has a lot of good stuff but it's too expensive: I wanted to get an AI'd Nikkor 85 mm f1.8 and sent an offer to that seller, but he was available just to offer a discount of 10 pounds, so I decided to order in Japan.

I think that would be fun. A good ol' fashioned film crawl. I live in northwest Houston, how about you? Although, I'd be pretty much free to meet wherever.

Here are my four post K Series MF "Pentax Black Beauties" !

The Super A has just come back from visiting Eric and the LX & P50 are refueling for their trip to TN. The MX is grounded as it's never flown, so I think I'll leave it that way.

Beautiful, a dream camera for me. I bonded with the MX much as you did with the KX. I have a similarly boxed silver MX; it looks new, but it may have been used a few times, hard to tell. I keep it in reserve in case my other three are lost

I have owned several vintage cameras in brand new condition.
I never used them for fear of scratching them, and sold them on.

I'll admit I like my gear to look good - but not perfect.

Thanks Arnold, this is my only MX so it will be hard not to use it at some point.

Yeah I usually buy exc+ to mint and then use all my gear and keep it looking like the condition I bought it in. The MX still has the factory plastic shutter curtain protector in place, so it will be a tough decision. For once the pictures/seller were not exaggerating when they said it looked like it was never used.

I once offered to buy a MIB black Spotmatic that was still in the 'Asahi Pentax Spotmatic' printed, sealed cellophane wrapper. In a way I'm happy my offer was declined.

You sold me one of those back in 2011.
It is not a shelf Queen either, I shoot with it regularly.

Glad to hear it's being used.
I haven't used my in awhile.
I might put a 35/3.5 on it and just shoot blind with it.
