Does the subject suggest you are about to embark on some film experiments?
no - I can honestly state that I am not interested in film...

this SLR is non-functional; it came with a couple of lenses that I did want, but the camera is in really nice shape, so I kept it...

but the thought of a K-mount DSLR this size makes me itch...

Just a word on my Sigma 20mm:

I had sent it back to Adorama for repair (due to a horrible overexposure issue); they found that the lens had a sticky aperture and repaired it...

when it arrived, I noticed damage to the lens that was not there prior to me shipping it...

I've already notified Adorama about the damage....
That sucks. Hope they make it right.
