    Thanks for the tips everyone! I think I'll give Mr. Hendrickson a call, I'll unload all my 50mm f2's and see what he can do! haha!
    @lxdude, the camera only came with the strap lugs. So I (unfortunately) just put on a third party generic strap. The strap broke at the point where the actual fabric meets the metal lug of the strap (which then is attached to the LX lug). So, no fault with the LX!
    Yeah, I've moved the shutter dial, no dice. The mirror is up and it looks like it wants to stay there . I'll send the camera with the lens because it looks like the lens took most of the damage. There's a dent in the filter threads, but I was able to 'kinda' bend it back into shape, so filters can still be put on. But the lens is probably completely out of alignment...
    As for insurance, I won't be able to afford it now! Students need to eat!

    It will need a thorough checking to restore to spec, but the actual problem may be simple to resolve, i.e., adjustment. Do take out those batteries if you haven't yet. Get a good strong strap-they're about 20 bucks or so.
    Eric should be able to straighten out those filter threads as part of everything.

    And, my condolences. A painful experience, no doubt.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    BTW-he is also happy to take donations of Pentax stuff which you don't want, which he can use for parts. I've tossed a few things in the box for him to keep-stuff which I didn't need (I have more than enough 50mm f/2's, for instance) or were for cameras I don't have. I figure he does his best to take care of us, so I'll do what I can in return.


    I don't know if you mean me, but I guess I'll do in a pinch, anyway.
    Yep--don't know why I blanked on that, but thanks for stepping in. I must be getting old, the memory's going.
