Must say I really like it. Small and great in the hand. I use it with a 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8 and 135mm f/3.5 - all MF and very old.
Not that hard to nail focus after some practice.

Very nice, particularly with nailing focus in MF.

Glad to see you enjoy it, Mimik - to me, it's like my K-x. Great picture quality, and small enough I'm more likely to have it with me.

The focus peaking makes it easier to use with legacy glass than the K-x, though! :-)

Like you, I have that 28mm f2.8.

I also have a 50mm f1.4, 300mm f4, and a Soviet Helios 58mm f2.

I have to say, with some of the great prices the K-S1 can be found for, I am thinking about it as well. The 20MP sensor with no AA sounds pretty good, and its a really compact, sleek camera

Great shots! It's a bonza little camera - certainly not deserving of its vitriolic reception.
