Nice shot. I need to use my M lenses more.
I have used my manual lenses much less in the last couple of years, mostly because of having kids and needing AF to keep up, but lately I'm enjoying them again.

My new incentive is the K-50 has aperture block failure so the manual, M, lenses are all the works on it.

Yeah, I get the impression that that "incentive" is quite common.....

So, here I am looking for another K-50, hoping that it will (mine has its quirks but no aperture block failure so far) develop aperture block failure to add to this incentive ;-))

Why buy and hope for the failure? When you buy one that already has the aperture block failure you most likely get a discount

Well, I looks like its doing a pretty decent imitation. That's a lovely scene you've captured.
