On The Streets, SMC Pentax-M 40mm F2.8

'Five frames with the SMC Pentax-M 40mm F2.8, following the flow of the crowd along the streets'

Continuing from where I left off with the earlier post, Street Squares, taken with the Pentax MX, an all manual camera, mounted with the SMC Pentax-M 40mm F2.8. The Pentax MX features a fully mechanical construction, including a horizontal travel cloth type mechanical shutter with a shutter speed range from 1 to 1/1000 second, plus B.


The MX does not have any autofocus or autoexposure modes such as aperture-priority, shutter-speed priority, or any programming functionality. It is strictly manual. Film ISO speed rating is from 32 to 1600, and the light metering system is the only function that is dependent on batteries. Introduced in 1976, the camera was Pentax's flagship professional SLR until the introduction of the Pentax LX.

The camera is solidly built, very compact, and is smaller and lighter than the preceding K Series models, which of course, includes the much beloved and highly acknowledged K1000. It was designed as the mechanical twin sister of the remarkably successful entry-level Pentax ME.
