Nice shots there Stepmac.

And the Caddy of cameras would be Leica - Over priced and under performing.

The Pentax is more a classic Plymouth then anything else - it's just different enough to make it interesting, but not so quirky to make it awkward.
The 645 can be the Chrysler Imperial.

Pentaxians also tend to drive antique cars, never stop at fast food restaurants, shoot muzzle loaders, stay married to the same women, own a wind up Victrola, and went digital kicking and screaming.
Antique cars. Check. Same woman. Definitively, Check. Wind up - HMV, Check. Kicking and screaming. Double check. Valve and vinyl society member, Check!

I can't see Pentax as any american cars with it being of the compact persuasion
maybe AlfaRomeo

I like to say "Canon and Nikon are like Ford and Chevy, and Pentax is Studebaker". Hopefully, it won't go the same way.

Welcome to the K-01 cult!

Re: M42s: Do you have Auto-ISO turned on? With it on and a M42 lens, I think the K-01 is ignoring the mode dial and just shooting everything in "TAv" mode, where it adjusts the ISO AND the shutter speed (with a fondness for 1/125, it seems). It's not really documented (and has been frustrating for folks who are used to how older Pentax dSLRs work with M42s). After getting used to it, I found it so useful that I put some celo tape on the mounts of a couple M lenses to make the camera think they were M42s. Just point, focus (or not, if hyperfocal), and click. Lazy, I know...
I just had my K01 act this way when I mounted an old Tamron Adaptall SP mirror lens. It drove me nuts. I'll check and see if auto-ISO makes a difference, but I couldn't figure out for the life of me why I could not get manual exposure to set.

What did you like about that mode? With a 500mm lens, having the camera gravitate to 1/125 was not all that useful.
