Hi all,my first SLR(about 35 years ago) was the Pentax KX.What a dream camera.(second fav was the Nikon FE)

I will have 2 - 3 lenses with it.;Vivitar 28-80mm w shade -in awesome shape,a Pentax 135mm in OK shape...and I have a bid in on a 40mm pancake 2.8

True,I didn't win the KX yet...but I passed up some cheaper KX's to buy a real nice condition one...and I have a good ,healthy bid in.

This camera is like having a classic car!All three lenses are short in length/compact.

Tomorrow by 3 pm I will know...(KX)
...And a side note - tomorrow night 7pm I'm doing my biggest photo show of my life!

Happy day / Larry

ADD-Sure is heating up - being it's in such nice condition - collectors may be after it...
,my healthy bid got smashed.
But,at 3:20ish ,I plan on putting in an (unhealthy) bid.

Add 2;('Starting to boil');I'm now strongly considering the K2.Same metering pattern and make as the KX,but (as Nikon FE)ALSO has auto/apperature priority.

ADD 3 ; OK-same price for either...in real nice shape...went with KEH-they have a free 6 month repair...etc. , I settled on the K2.
Same viewfinder/displays/shutters w/floating exposure needle...which I like,;
differences; K2 metal vertical electronic shutter,and K2 has apperature auto.
