Pentax LX infinity focus issue -advice needed

Thanks everyone for your comments!

Taking into account the above, it seems like a misaligned mirror since the bottom of the frame looks to be more in focus than the top.

Iíll be sending it over to Cor van den Haspel from http://www.camerareparatie.nl
He came highly recommended by my local camera shop, and did a fabulous job on restoring my Spotmatic II. Even changing out the entire prism at no extra cost.

I feared he completely stopped work on analog cameras since it took so for him to respond, but he just quoted me Ä45 to alleviate the problem and check if any additional work needs to be done before sending it back over.

Looking forward to having my Pentax LX in perfect working order. It looks to be in perfect condition concerning everything else. Even still had the protective foil on the bottom plate!

Thanks again to everyone who responded!

Pentax LX infinity focus issue -advice needed
Posted By jschoonj

Hello everyone,

I just got my hands on a Pentax LX with the standard viewfinder and a split-prism focusing glass.

My issue is the following. Using manual focus K-mount lenses, the split-prism is always just a hair off when focusing to infinity. However, using more modern autofocus K-mount lenses, I seem to be able to get it to focus accurately on the prism, as these lenses allow to go slightly past infinity.

My first roll of film that I shot specifically for testing is in development as we speak. So Iím not sure how much this issue actually translates to final images.

Could this be the beginning of the infamous sticky mirror syndrome acting up, pushing the mirror slightly out of alignment? Or is the focusing screen perhaps not correctly installed?

Given how expensive CLAís are for this camera Iím looking to see if thereís anything Iím overlooking or I should just send it in?

Thanks in advance!

J.S.

It should be set to yes since the photos are hosted on an external http site.
Hopefully changing it back to yes as dsmithhfx suggests will resolve things.

Thatís too bad.. Iíd send some your way but since the local price converts to roughly $6 + shipping that probably wouldnít represent big savings. Not factoring in the risk of customs confiscating the whole lot 😬.

Thanks! Itís a pretty great cheap film. Luckily still pretty readily available here in Belgium for under Ä 5. Building up some stock in my freezer as we speak since it was sadly discontinued recently :-(.

Family life has kept me away from the forum for quite some time.
Anyways here are some recent vacation shots, getting back in to film :-).
All on Agfa Vista 200 with my trusty Pentax SPII & 55mm SMC Takumar f1.8.
