  • Summary: I bought this to have an all in one for a good price, it has been working well for that. It does not take professional quality pictures but good enough to put on social websites to share with friends.

  • Excerpt: When I started to get into photography and was trying to get better shots with my automatic weather resistant film camera back in 1999 I was talking with my mom and explaining how I wish I could have more control over my photos. She started digging through her closet and pulled out this dusty old camera bag, inside was her old Pentax MX with M 50mm 1.7 and Vivitar 70-210mm Macro zoom.
  • Pros: simple, fully manual, light, compact, build quality, viewfinder
  • Cons: film?

  • Excerpt: I used them continually, as a semi pro, throughout late '70's to early '90's. Didn't get them serviced but never once let me down. Change of job / circumstances and lack of interest meant they haven't hardly been used since. Still work perfectly although the light meter seems to be permanent on or stuck on one of them.
  • Pros: Tough and Reliable
  • Cons: By '70's and '80's standards: none

  • Excerpt: It was touted as a PRO system camera and I recall that it was never given too much notice back in the 80s.
  • Pros: Size, weight, all mechanical speeds
  • Cons: some duds were in production

  • Excerpt: One of the few fully modular 35mm cameras which, in it's time, gave 85 to 90 percent of the performance of the outstanding Canon F1 and Nikon F2AS at just over 60 percent of the price. By any standards this was a remarkable achievement.

  • Excerpt: A well used second hand MX was my first Pentax camera with some lenses. I still use it nowadays, though I bought two other bodies, a silver and a black in mint condition only for show.

  • Excerpt: I recently bought an MX and mint M-50/f1.7 to replace my Spotmatic SP F which was dyeing a slow death... I've also used a MF Minolta SLR and several 35mm rangefinders but generally my film experience isn't great so keep that in mind

  • Excerpt: I just bought a used one recently, and was very impressed by the finder. Big bright, 0.97x magnification really makes a difference.
