My collection. The P50 and the MZ-S see the most frequent action. The Spotmatic II has a broken light meter, but I bought it as a part of a larger set (darkroom equipment etc) and I like the lens a lot. It's frequently mounted on the P50 which is my favorite manual Pentax film camera.

The ME Super is my most recent buy and it's absolutely spotless. I haven't put any film in it yet.

I got the MZ-S earlier this year by trading my K10D and some cash. It's also in very good condition. 89 rolls seem to have been through it. I really like the MZ-S, it fits perfectly in my hand even though the much bigger K20D fits too.

It's in need of light seal and especially mirror foam replacement. That's why I haven't shot a whole roll with it yet. But I must say I like the feel of the P50 more anyway.

The reason the MX was without lens is simple. I don't have a lens for every body.

Oh, mannnnn...

You guys are killing me with your slick skins. Pity that all of my film cameras have leatherette that is in excellent condition.

Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am waiting for my Coarse Black Lizard skin and my Red Ringmark Lizard (black and red) to arrive to get on my two remaining LX (the third one is for sale on the forum).
You guys are quite courageous with the Snake skin you might meet an angry relative of the previous owner of the skin

Cheers,

Luc

Hee. Pretty. LXes, in my opinion, look best with a really heavily textured black skin. I might be tempted to go for a brown, though. I like the brown on black look in general.

Here's my growing family of Pentax 35mm SLRs. My grandpa's old MX, my ME and the newest member, a EX+ MZ-L from KEH. Just got it in the mail today and so far I think it is an awesome little camera. I love the size.

Front row, left to right: Super Program, Auto 110, K1000, ME Super, then Optio A40 and K10D, my only 2 digitals.

Back row: IQZoom 60, PC-33, Spotmatic, *ist.

Black Lizard LX

I received my first kit from cameraleather.com - Black Lizard for my LX.
It was actually very easy to install with the wet method described on their site (Frank thanks for the tip). The most work was to remove the old skin and glue


Now of course all the dings, blemishes and scratches on the paint are showing more than ever. Is there a paint shop for camera ?

I am very happy with the product and i have ordered another LX kit Red Ringmarked Lizard (black and red) but I have not received any confirmation yet regarding availability or otherwise. If not available then I would have to make up my mind between Red Lizard and Dark Brown Lizard

I was very conservative with the Black Lizard and somewhat I think that i should have been a little bit more adventurous.

Cheers,

Luc


ps: Oh and BTW, this is my newest acquisition Pentax K 28/2.0, as sweet a lens as can be...

That's beautiful, excellent job on changing the skin Made me wonder if I've made the right decision on the cobra skin ...

I got another LX coming soon, let's see how it goes. Might change its skin to something similar ...

Thank you Frank.
I like the Cobra skin. I f you get tired of it after a year, you can always change it again. A little bit of a waste but it might feel like having indulged in a new camera but with the comfort of keeping your trusted old one

Listen to me, is the film forum changing into a iPhone forum . Next I know I will be talking about changing ring tones when you change a roll of film

Cheers,

Luc
