More Pentax gear than I can recall

Over the years I've had so much Pentax gear that I've forgotten what I've owned. I've visited often and I'm familiar with many of your names, but just never joined the forum until now. I've often bought the more unique lenses just to use them for a while. I've had 2 of the shift lenses and 2 of the rectilinear 15mm, for example. My latest acquisition is an SMC-A 28mm f2.0, in anticipation of the return of FF. I'm only a documentarian photographer. I don't print, and in fact have done little PP, but doing more lately. I use Pentax simply because that was the path I started on in 1977 with a K-1000. I've just stayed with it. My latest camera is the K-30, which did all of this Flickr set.

Someone will find the dirt on my sensor in a couple of shots, which I strongly suspect was a bit of the black rubber ring on the DA17-70mm lens mount. My first question here would be whether anyone else has noticed that the gasket is so soft that it actually rubs off onto the lens mount plate on the body.
