If you have the touch, the MX can do mirror lockup. I use it on mine.
Does the Pentax MX have mirror lock-up? and repair tips

Nice post, thanks.

Interesting that the advert switches from the 50mm 1.4 to the 40 mm 2.8 pancake for the profile shot.
Ah, but it does say that in the fine print! I guess the big glass of the 50mm f1.4 is more appealing than the small hole on the pancake...

Nice advert, BTW. I remember standing in the camera shop in 1981 humming and haa-ing between the MX and an Olympus OM-1 (after trading in my Praktica MTL3). The Pentax won; I still use it.

i used to have a ME Super and now have an MX it's "huge" vs "even more huge"
This is not helping me at all

After reading this thread :

I had settled that the choice should be between ME Super and MX. But now I feel like trying them both out, and seeing the differences.


Was this part just sales talk, or what did they mean that the MX is free from “the usual dust problems associated with removable prisms” ?

The best way is to try them both out. There's a ME Super in the marketplace that's in working order. The MX isn't really like the rest of the M series in the way it works etc. The Super is more like the SuperProgram and ME F.

They definitely had a sports theme going in '78. These I think are the last two MX ads I'll find...
