Body count poll

The body count thread is cool but probably fubar, so here's a poll to help keep it orderly. Unfortunately, you can't edit the poll options like you can a thread post, so I can't correct the typo for "LX" which mistakenly says "LS" ... mea culpa there.

The poll

It takes a while to fill out the poll form after opening the thread. On my first try it actually took too long and wouldn't let me create it.

Hopefully the list is complete, but I did leave an "other" option just in case. The "LS" should be "LX" of course ...

you cant add more than one vote per body selection. I guess if you have 5 of one body, only one really counts (no, I don't have 5 of one boy) but to some it might be important.

I forgot to add my spotmatic SPII.. oh well. I probably wont be the only one to screw that up.

it's too bad that yopu don't list the ricoh, vivitar, cosina, and early sigma film bodies also, since they all use K mounts, likewise for pratika screw mount bodies. At least list them by manufacturer.

I thought of that, but the poll software only tallies one vote per box. Think of it as counting people who use a particular model rather than how many of a particular model are in use.

Maybe Marc or somebody can add that ... (and announce it so it doesn't get done multiple times.)

Did I miss something. Of all the cameras I can't believe the LX isn't there.

LS is LX

Yes, the LX is there, albeit as a typo:

You could compare this to the statistics in dimitrov website, so far results are very similar

Film bodies

So far, 40 people use 169 cameras or 4.23 cameras per person. The MX and ME Super are well represented, but I expected that.

For those of you who use an "Other" Pentax film body, what is it?

I sometimes have 2 K2 in use with either a different film and/or lenses.

Edit: This is already working out better. I commend you for have the "guts" to type all that in to see if it would work. I considered it the other day and decided I couldn't handle it if I typed all that in and it limited the number of votes to like 3 or something.

Poll results

So far, with 74 votes, our top camera model is the ME Super with 22 users!

In the bayonet era, the most loved series is the M cameras with 52, the K series a close second with 48; the least loved the SF series with 2.

One surprise, for me, anyway, is that the PZ-1 / PZ-1p only tallied 4 votes. I really thought that would be a lot higher.
