This legendary 35mm SLR might still need some introduction for some. Often overlooked because of the Nikon F3 or Canon New F1 but Pentax introduced this stunner in 1980. Manual or aperture priority controls, Pentax K-mount, advanced metering, lightweight though solid body construction, clear LED read-out, interchangeable finders & backs AND weather/dust sealing! 

The LX is both smaller and lighter than its competitors and we can't recommend it enough. We've shot it all and the Pentax LX is definitely in our top-3 35mm SLR cameras. It's that good!


This example comes in good condition with normal wear for its age. Comes with the standard FA-1 finder. Speeds and meter are accurate and within factory specification.

Light meters can't last forever and even though we garantuee a proper function (unless stated otherwise), due to the fragile nature of the meters, we can not cover them under our warranty.
