Black Body MX

Well, my two K1000s both lost meter functionality. They will now become project cameras - I'll have to take them apart to fix the meters.

I've been wanting an MX for a long time, and finally this evening sprung for a black body MX from a camera store, tested and verified all good functionality by the store technician (with guarantee). The body is somewhat scratched and brassed, but I don't care about that.

It will arrive next week, so I'm looking forward to running a roll of Tri-X through it as soon as I get it.

This should be a nice "pocket" kit with my SMC-M 40mm f2.8 pancake. Who needs a rangefinder with a little kit like that?

I'll post pictures here when it arrives.

Nice Zav!

Now there's an MX that won't hide in the shadows any more!

I've got a MX, K1000, ME-super, MG, SFX, MZ-S, P30N, MZ-M, SF-7, and way too many lenses to list here.

The P30N I actually just aquired for 10 euro's, have a roll in it at the moment for testing. And the MZ-M also not so long ago for 45 euros, it ame together with A35-80 and a F80-200 lenses. Not bad deals I would say

When I got home from work this afternoon there was a box on my porch - my "new" MX arrived! It is a little rough around the edges with a few small dings and some brassing, but it is not bad. I thoroughly checked it out and everything works perfectly, as claimed by the seller. It feels good to handle, and I really like the overall ergonomics. I was not sure I would like the LED metering since I am accustomed to the needle in the Spotmatics and K1000 bodies, but it is really nice. I tried it both indoors and outdoors in bright sunlight, and it's fine at both extremes. It is REALLY a nice fit with my Pentax-M 40mm f2.8 pancake lens! The first roll of Tri-X is soaking in Rodinal as I type.
