This is my favourite of all Pentax film cameras especially with my smc 55mm f1.8 attached. It is a pleasure to use, feels right in my hand and has a wonderful large bright view when held up to the eye. It looks great, always gets attention and most importantly it is a fun but serious camera to use. I have a second MX in case anything ever happens to my main one.
If you are thinking of getting one of these, then you will end up with one of the finest examples of Pentax film cameras. If you also end up with a KX, MX and LX even better. The K2 was the first bayonet Pentax and came out in 1975, but was short lived because the M series were in the works. There is a wonderful quality to these metal works of art that reflects in their primary mission of only being a camera, and not a computer that happens to have a lens on it.
In the age of ever-advancing digital technology, there’s something appealing about the retro feel of a reliable film camera. Whether you’re using it for an artistic photoshoot, honing your photography skills, or just prefer film to digital, Batteries Plus Bulbs has the battery you need to get the most out of your Pentax film camera.
I have two Pentax film cameras (Spotmatic, ME Super) and two DSLR's (K10D, K-5II) and they are all outstanding cameras. The feel of the K-5II is superior in hand. Small and solid. Had a chance to test out a 645Z twice in store and the photos in can produce are fantastic. Wish I could afford one.
