Pentax really led the way with early SLRs and with the introduction of the LX in 1980 hit the pinnacle of manual SLR perfection.  Unfortunately, as a family owned company, they didn't have the marketing clout of large corporations like Nikon and Canon to promote their product.  The later would have lenses and service staff at all major events to assist the Pro's and that sort or resource was beyond Pentax.  Still, the LX, and I owned one, was an absolutely superb camera; I traded in my Canon F1 and looked at the Nikon F3 and LX deciding on the LX ...no regrets.
