LXs on eBay

I'm not affiliated with this seller, but it seems like a pretty good price to me ($350) for a well cared-for LX w/ winder. 2 available!:

That looks like a very good price.
But this is another "xenophobic" seller that does not ship to Canada being "overseas"
I already have two and I am in Canada otherwise I would scoop them even with the very probable need for a stay with Eric.

Anybody in the forum with the $ to spare

Cheers,

Luc

You might try PMing the guy and see if he'll make an exception to ship to Canada. Couldn't hurt!

Yes I was thinking that and then I was wondering what I would do with one more LX. Two its OK I can shoot from each hand - three I would need to start a circus act

Cheers,

I'd really like to pick one up, but I already have several film cameras I don't use and I just bought an MX today.

$350 with winder/grip is pretty sweet. Too bad I am overspent on my KX at this point after CLA and a K 55/1.8. Oh well, the LX is gone now...

This seller has a third LX body/winder combo up now:

It looks like the older style shutter lock but still a good price.

While digital is all about the lens and body combination to get the right image, 35mm film is usually all about the lens quality. I could never justify paying over $80 for a film SLR anymore. I can put a prime lens on any body, whether it be Ricoh, Pentax, or Vivitar and still get a high quality image, providing you watch the different metering systems at hand.

Right you are, the link that I posted is the same as the first link in the OP. Not that it matters now as both are sold.

Like that would actually stop some of us. I had to put myself in a straight jacket last night because I was looking at Miranda's and Exacta's. In and of itself it wouldn't be all that bad for a "collectable" body but then the LBA would start just to round out a few lenses . . .


Edit: O.k. Fess up. Who got them?

However, there is the "collection" aspect of it as well. Plus, some bodies have certain features that my be desirable. The LX has 2 features that the K2 doesn't have. However, I'm not going to get an LX for them but one of those 2 features does intrigue the hell out of me.

...Mirandas, Exactas and Alpas, Oh! My!

(A buddy of mine was telling me that he came a cross a late '60s Alpa in storage that belonged to his wife. He saw the sudden wild look in my eye and quickly added, "Its not for sale...")

Have you ever handled and used a Pentax LX?
