Just add dial below exp comp for white balance.

I would hardly regard the MZ series ( apart from the MZ-S ) as in any way 'classic' .

These were the lightweight , plastic products which heralded the demise of Pentax 35mm offerings , and in no way a patch on earlier products .

Since the topic is no doubt insipired by the forthcoming Nikon retro camera , I would hope that any Pentax offering is based on the LX , which is the best 35mm camera of that era ( besides , I still have two LX's and accessories for them which I would wish to use with the new camera ) .

There's already a retro camera based on the MX , and there was a previous limited edition K10 ( I think it was ) liveried up as an 'Asahi Pentax' , so retro cameras would be nothing new .

They could also do a limited edition Q masquerading as an Auto 110
