    Well, the lugs won't accept Hasselblad straps, but the camera will.

    I have one I really like. I never heard of sticky mirror but will gave to look it up now. I got lugs (and the camera) from KEH with no problem except for the $20 or so price tag.

    I wish it had exposure memory lock but that's the only lack I see. Great camera.

    Mine had sticky mirror and just about everything else, including the serious focus problems. I sent it to Eric at pentaxs.com and had it completely overhauled. Now it's like new and simply amazing!

    I'm confused. Hasselblad straps attach to a lug. The Pentax LX uses lugs to attach straps. The Hasselblad strap clips do not fit on the LX lugs.

    So how does the LX camera use Hasselblad straps?

    And what is a "lug"? Most cameras have a thing with a hole in it into which a ring is inserted, and it is called a lug. On the LX (and the medium format Pentaxes) a post projects from the body and is usually called a lug, while the swivel part that attaches to it, and to which the strap is attached, is also usually called a lug. Oy.

    I think the Hasselblad type strap will fit the Pentax 645 and 6x7 format bodies but not the LX.
    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.

    A Hasselblad strap to an LX? I don't think so.

    One of my LX bodies didn't come with the original Pentax clip on strap clips, so I purchased the OP/Tech Super Pro A strap which attaches to the bare metal lugs on the LX body. This strap also fits Hasselblad 500 and 503 series bodies (if not other Hasselblad bodies).

    3. DON'T DROP IT! and, when buying one, see if it comes with strap lugs. the lugs are quite rare!
    The lugs of the Hasselblad strap are fitting perfectly on the LX...
