I believe you CAN use M42 lenses on a Canon body. Google/eBay for M42-EF adapters....

But as long as you're aware of the AF issues (mainly speed, especially in lower light, is still accurate though), the slower FPS (compared to a XXD series or higher Canon body) and you are able to find the lenses you want, the Pentax system would be great!
