Jeste, just posted couple of Landscape shots from K1 in landscape section. Had to wait a little for C1 to finally support native format... But it is all good now.
Also Pef is greatly supported by Photomate app if you want to develop on the go.
How to destroy Pentax? Haven't found yet how to do it physically... Dropped my K3/K1 soo many times. I guess if the user base is destroyed/switched to competitive brand (Fuji?), that would probably destroy the Pentax...
Recently picked up those 2 boys. (K2 flagship Slr of 1975) and Pz1P (arguable best Pentax 35mm camera ever made). Still going super strong after so many years.

I have been using Pentax and have absolutely no complaints. I recently passed on my Spotmatic and Program Plus to individuals interested in working with film. Both working perfectly and still taking awesome shots. Well done Pentax.

My pleasure Michael. I think brand is finally on the rite track.


And pls pls whoever thinks about lens selection...dont disregard FA glass (film glass), some of it (Limited for example) are stunning on K1.

I have a number of FA limited lens. I adore the 70mm limited. What a fantastic portrait lens. Maybe we should start a thread on recommended lens both Pentax and after market although the Pentax Forum has a terrific section.

I also have the 77mm. I find not much difference between them. Why I have them both......? You can never have enough lenses. Yup I have the divine 3. Awesome lenses.

Mine are all in black. I find the silver lens on a black body make the outfit stand out to much. But thats just a personal preference. Now long a white body.....
