I've had a couple of copies of the A and found them to be sharper wide open that the M, but other than that no difference. The A setting is useful but the gritty, broken plastic feel of moving the aperture ring on the A make it unpleasant to use on a film camera, so I've sold both copies I've owned. I have three of the Ms - one for home, one in my parents'-in-law's house and one at my own folks' house - that way I know I will always have a good 50mm available wherever I am.
I've heard the stories about most of the A lenses having junk aperture rings. I don't understand why Pentax did that; I know it's cost savings, but how much was really saved at the volume they were producing those lenses, and what impact did that have on their reputation as a lens manufacturer?

I could definitely see having a film camera, an M 50 1.7, and maybe a 24 or 28 of some sort to form an extremely basic kit that sits in a desk drawer or closet, waiting for you when you need it and didn't bring something with.

4th

It snowed today

K1ii M100/4 ISO100 f5.6 1/20:


Came as a surprise, just a short shower and didn't stick, as we are couple of degrees on plus side. Still the first snow of the season. Ruined my plan to shoot fall colors today

More M 100/4 Macro, but it was close to 40 degrees (Arco, Italy).

You are late. Our first was a week ago last Sunday.

Not even a beginning of snow here in the Netherlands. Nice capture, Scout, definitely works very well in B&W.

Wow, Northcoastgreg, can I just say that your images make me want to live near the north coast (and have a K-1)?
Yes, there are undoubted advantages to living in a scenic area on the coast and being able to use M series lenses on the K-1.

Here's an M 20/4 shot at Patrick's Point SP:

I really love the M series lenses so far. I know they're generally considered to compromise on image and build quality compared to the Takumars and K series, but my experience with them hasn't left me wanting in either category, and the compactness makes them all the more attractive. The M 200 f/4 is one of the more commonly disparaged M lens compared to its immediate predecessors and successors, but it's still a joy to use and has even surprised me on many occasions with its sharpness. Here's a shot with the 200m from my hometown, which I can humbly say is the first time I've ever used hyperfocal distance to such clear benefit. I had many duplicate shots shot at infinite focus instead, but the grassy foreground was always obviously blurred, while this final shot is quite sharp all-around (I believe f/8, maybe 11.)

Another very nice set. Great scenery in both images.
