Just received a ProgamA (Program plus), a AF280T flash, 35-70 3.5-4.6 lens and several cokin filters. paid 15 euros (about 11 dollars) for it. Not a bad deal I think

My Pentax SFX. Got it on ebay with a F 35mm-70mm lens for $50 AUD (Did i pay too much??)

Loving it! It performs better than my expectations, and I am still learning how to use it.
It also helps when a shop near my house still processes film!

Pictured here with a FA50mm 1.4 lens

My birthyear camera as taken by my LX using Kodak BW400CN. The one and only original . . . ;-)



Even though it was reviewed in the January 1958 Modern Photography magazine, it was introduced in 1957.

No, you didn't. The F35-70 is actually a very nice lens (one of the better "standard" zooms and better than most of the 28-80mm offerings) and the price you paid is a good one for the lens alone, so you essentially got a free camera...

Meet my new friend...



The ZX-5, with his little buddy the Pentax F 35-70 lens. A nice little pair! And I like the lens on my K-x, too! Snappy focus, sharp images.

I'm looking forward to the discipline of shooting film and having only 24 or 36 exposures to get the job done!

wow ZX-5! Good camera! Was looking for one myself too but they are all too expensive!

Taking only 24 exposure actually trained me to avoid taking unnecessary shots.
There's also the excitement when going to collect the photographs to see how they turn out!

just like the good old times!

the ZX-5 is a very bad camera, you shouldn't use it. Just give it to me, I will make sure it will be disposed off properly
