2 SP's (chrome)
4 SPII's, but only 2 are functional. (2 chrome, 2 black)
SP-F (black, needs work)
3 K1000's
2 KX's (both in black)
ME Super (total junker)

Mostly I just use the chrome SPII and the two KX's when I shoot film. One of these days I want to get Eric to CLA all my black bodies for me but so far I haven't gotten to it. Too busy saving up for a new DSLR. I hardly ever use the rest, the K1000's, the original Spotties, the P3. I play with them now and again to keep the shutter moving but I have no real use for them. I'm definitely a black SPII/KX fan...


K-x (black)
(I had an *ist DL but my niece got that for Christmas...)

I currently own 7 digital bodies and 9 film bodies if all goes according to plan I'll be at 6 bodies before bed time. (Selling my EM5 tonight)

K100D (on permanent loan to my niece until I can feel she needs my K5)

Agfa something rather...

I have stopped going into the used section at stores because I don't know if I can sneak any more cams into the house...

  • ZX-5N
  • K100D
  • K-01

  • Ricoh XR-7
  • Sears KS-2

Those two are made by Ricoh and they are K-mount, so maybe they count for something here? I learned on the KS-2 and remain fond of it.

I still have all my Pentax cameras but as a sad commentary on modern times I have:

Just two bodies (Mx and LX) which was all I needed in 30 years of film photography and

Four digital bodies already (1*stD, K7, K-01 and K30).

I own one (K-5). Would like to have picked up a K-01 I saw for sale locally (used) to use as a backup. Would be fun to at least try it out?

Is it the makers' notion of obsolescence or are we just trying to achieve some sort of image perfection? The real difference is that film had basically stagnated by the time digital emerged as a viable imaging process, whereas sensor development is nowhere near that point, yet. If it was just a matter of replacing the sensor with the ease that we used to replace film, we'd probably all be satisfied with the camera bodies we have. I imagine that's the scenario that Ricoh was looking to emulate with the GX-R, and maybe they'll do that with the imagined Pentax 35FF body, but the sensor isn't the only thing that's progressing in a technical sense, and I expect AF and AE to continue to change, not to mention external communications, viewfinders, GPS etc.
