I own three of these gems in absolutely mint condition. The MX is my all-time favorite non-auto 35mm camera. And, as a longtime sufferer of GAS, believe me when I say I have tried and probably own all competition.

I have a number of Pentax lenses for it and my Super Programs, but the added functions of the Pentax A lenses aren't used on the MX, since there is no program mode. The Pentax M lenses work just fine, too.
Put the very nice Pentax 40mm 2.8 pancake M lens on it and you have a pocketable rig. A large pocket, mind you, but it makes a tidy outfit. Good for street shooting also.
