Pentax MX(Black) with Pentax 50mm f1.7
Overall Condition 8/10 all functions working, working light meter, lens is clean and clear, some small dust in viewfinder.
The Pentax MX was a mechanical camera, with an horizontal cloth focal plane shutter from 1s to 1/1000, synchronized at 1/60. The shutter dial was on the top plate, next to the advance lever and the release button.
The Pentax MX had a 0.97× viewfinder, covering 95% of the field. The shutter speed and aperture value were visible in the finder, the aperture being read on the lens ring by way of an optical device. The finder was fixed, but the finder screen could be interchanged through the bayonet mount, a system again introduced by the OM-1. There was a choice of eight finder screens, the standard one having a split-image device and a microprism ring in the center. All of them could be used on the Pentax LX too.
