    Just picked up (for free) a Pentax SFX SLR with a SMC 35-70 lens. Is anyone able to share any info on this camera?

    I did have an SFXn for a short while. The camera performs well enough, but as you probably already know the autofocus is rather ponderous. However it can use any Pentax K fit lens, with the exception of some made for crop frame digital sensors and those without aperure rings (J type I think).

    It was one of the first series of autofocus Pentax cameras, there was also an auto only version, which I think was the SF7, if I am wrong somebody will quickly correct me!

    Yup, glaciers are quicker.

    Was the SF7 auto-only? ISTR it was manual as well, and was simply a stripped-down SFX.

    The SF7 was a simplified version of the SFX. It omitted the servo focus mode and had a single programmed exposure mode.
