looks great, and i like the look of that 1.2 lens.
Now if only it came in a digital version ...

Of all the stuff in a busy photographers kitbag, the ability to see photographically is the most important

Nice - not keen on the snake skin look though.
I have always been interested in photography (more as a hobby). Now I want to be more than just an amateur photographer, improve my skills and start my own business when the time is right. To help me do this, I would be greatful for any feedback positive or negative so I can improve my skills and knowledge

It's beautiful. Shane, are you BigRed off the overlander 4WD forum? And can I ask how you find the Kx - I have been considering one of these, among others.

If money is the issue, though, the K-x is frighteningly good value for the price.
The leather used on that gorgeous camera is actually crocodile or alligator skin (or a leather embossed to look like it), and not snake or lizard.
Perhaps they were done in real skin, which is why they couldn't import them into the USA.
Unless looked after really well, which means no touching or rubbing, the gold plating would have gone dull and worn off by now.
Gorgeous thing it is though.
Would you use one?
I think it's something you put on the shelf and admire for many years.
Back in the old days, many SLR's were available with 50mm F1.2 and F1.4 lenses as standard (I had a Canon FT QL with the 50mm F1.4 back then), and Canon had a viewfinder camera back in the late 60's that had a 0.95 lens!
