    All this talk of a 'digital OM' has got me all nostalgic for my first 'real' camera - not an Olympus but a beautiful little Pentax MX with the timeless SMC Pentax-M 50/f1.7 (ask John M. Flores about this lens :wink:)

    So here she is, accompanied in #1 by the MX Winder - shot with an E-3 and ZD 12-60 SWD.








    And a couple of shots with the combo using the 'Sunny 16' rule - ahhh for fully manual bodies :smile:

    Great shots - and a great "old school" camera!

    Can't beat that classic design and the clean smooth click of an all-mechanical shutter...

    Still like to fire off my Nikon FM2 from time to time just hear the shutter sing!

    Probably my all time favourite camera. So simple, why do you need any more? With the cinematic viewfinder, and the M lenses awesome aperture rings, you can do shutter priority manually in the blink of an eye :)

    The MX works so nicely with the FA Limited 43/1.9, I just wish I had more time for scanning film...

    I just wish I had an FA Ltd 43/f1.9 (and 31/f1.8 and 77/f1.8 :biggrin:)
