This is also my first time pre-ordering a camera. Now the fun part of deciding on lenses begins... almost sure the D-FA 100mm WR will one of the first ones.

Go for it! I love it. I've used it as a primary for a few day trips. It's very capable -- and affordable

Still loving this camera. Just a pair of photos with some VSCO film 05 applied.

Haven't had the chance to be outdoors with the camera. Been sick the past few days. :(

I did take a few pictures of the family cat over the weekend. Doesn't mind cameras, so he's always a fun subject.

Never seen him tilt his head this much, so I had to hurry the shot. Wish the ear was completely in... next time.

I got mine on Amazon. It was a third party seller, but shipping fulfilled by Amazon.

Thanks! I almost picked silver, but the black was $50 cheaper at the time of ordering. The tilting screen comes in handy a lot more than expected.

I've had the MX-1 for about 2 months now. I absolutely love this camera. First compact camera that I've owned where I am not thinking "hm, there is this other little camera out there.. maybe I'll swap the one I have for this other one." I did that with the Panasonic LX5 and Canon S100. Not going to happen with this camera. Menu is simplistic. RAW files are nice to work with in Lightroom.

Owning this camera really does make me think about shooting with a Pentax DSLR, but I love my Nikon AI & AIS lenses. Perhaps in the future if I can balance two DSLR systems. For now I'm very satisfied with the MX-1 being my first Pentax camera.

Here are some photos that I've taken with the MX-1. I noticed all of them were shot indoors. Maybe the next batch will have some outdoors stuff. Enjoy!

I'd like the MX-1 to be an Amazon lightning deal. They have the Fuji XF1 compact up right now.

Gotta pass on this deal for now. If it were a seller on Amazon I would jump on it since I have a chunk of gift card balance to spend. Could an MX-1 successor be coming next year?

Wow, these are great. To be honest, I had no idea what NK looked like inside. Are there any good places to eat there?

Great set. There's a few I'd love to see as prints.

Pretty good start. I think the composure could be better. For example, photo 3 could have used less sky for the inclusion of the two guy's feet. Photo 1 could have benefited from that as well by including all of the horse. Keep shooting. Can't wait to see more.

Hello,

Finally registered as a forum member. Been a forum lurker, but I feel like contributing and being part of this community. I'm not dedicated to a particular brand, which is nice for the most part. I've never owned any Pentax gear, but I'm always considering it. The MX-1 has been pretty tempting for a compact camera.

The film MX has also been drawing my attention. I currently shoot Minolta for film, but putting together a second system seems affordable. Something about shooting film and manual focus keeps my digital shooting in check.

That's pretty much it from me. Can't wait to start posting more.

Justin
