Here's my film gear:

...and because one (ka-bajonet) lens was missing on first 2. photos, here's one more:
Wow, what a set up.

But how on earth do you focus your 1.2? I have an mz-s and a k50/1.2 and find the viewfinder hopeless for judging accurate focus.

Just went to the Flickr page and was welcomed with an image of a guy with 4 cameras, one of them a KX !! Long live Pentax.

My newly acquired MX with a selection of standard lenses. The light seals & mirror bumper have been replaced and all seems in good working order. I've put a roll of Portra 400 in it but so far only taken one shot, so I think it will be a few months before I see any of the results.

It's certainly a beautiful little machine, and amazingly solid. I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs.

That KX add-on must hold a hell of a lot of film. Looks very uncomfortable to use though.

250 ft of film, if I'm not mistaken?

Yeah you don’t see a complete KX Motor Drive/Bulk Loader set like that everyday, in mint condition.

There's also a black [EDIT: Chrome] KX Motor and battery grip up there without the bulk loader.

KX Motor, Battery Grip, Motor Drive and A50/1.7; all claimed working

Much more like. 250 *feet* would be bigger than most standard bulk loaders. 100 feet is about as big around as a roll of duct tape. (Well, say the inside of one plus a bit more. )

The Pentax bulk film loaders had 250 exposures/10 meters (33 feet) maximum.
