Well my friend Colleen got the MX. It is a well used but not abused camera. Thanks for the heads up Jerry Thisty (re:electronics). Although the hot shoe is dead the PC plug works and the meter doesn't activate when the shutter is locked.
Armed with this information I was able to get a good deal. The MX ,a 50mm 1.2 Pentax lens,power winder and a fully functional Ricoh KR-5. All for $80.00.Sweet.

Colleen is now looking for a medium zoom lens.I gave her an old 135mm but she likes the midrange glass. Something like a 35-80mm. Suggestions?

Thanks All for your replies
Mike
