Pentax MV-1

Pentax MV-1 & 40mm f/2.8 Review – A Quest For an Ideal Compact Film SLR – Part 1 – by Ed Lara

My GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) setting was kicked up a notch recently as a result of falling in love with the Olympus XA. The XA is a great camera, but despite my small hands, I still find it a bit too fiddly. I remembered how much I enjoyed my Pentax ME Super in college, so went to eBay to find a compact M. Rather than buying the relatively expensive Pentax MX or ME, I ended up with a less well-known MV-1 for a great price.
