Asahi Pentax MX equipped with SMC Pentax-M 50mm 1:1.7!

In 1976, Pentax introduced two compact 35mm SLRs, the MX and the ME. The Olympus OM-1 presented in 1972 had introduced a new trend for compactness in SLR cameras.

The Pentax MX was a mechanical camera, with a horizontal cloth focal plane shutter from 1s to 1/1000, synchronized at 1/60. The shutter dial was on the top plate, next to the advance lever and the release button. 

The Pentax MX had a 0.97× viewfinder, covering 95% of the field. The shutter speed and aperture value were visible in the finder, the aperture being read on the lens ring by way of an optical device.
