nearly a year ago (time flies), I acquired a K-S1 and an Adaptist PK+MM mount to try out:

Adaptist PK+MM installation and usage - PentaxForums.com

not so much as a failed experiment, but it did lead me to move into the Fuji sphere..
Do you have a paid flickr account and would you recommend it?

Fuji X-H1 with Tokina 100-300/F4.....@300mm. This lens I believe is a bit smoother and maybe a tad sharper than the Pentax A 400mm/5.6 and obviously allows you to zoom from 100-300. Nice for Train shots and sharp for bird shots as long as you don't need farther than 300mm.

All in all not bad for $87 dollars purchased from Roberts Cameras. Makes me hold off on getting the new Fuji 70-300mm @$799.

I do have a paid flickr account and if you are looking to keep images available pretty much anywhere you are...

it's worth it, especially in comparison to other sires available..

It's only like 5 bucks a month isn't it?

Now I'm not so sure. Both the Pentax A 400mm/5.6 and the Tokina 100-300/F4 both look similarly sharp when focused properly.

I think I've paid less than that so far by holding out until my subscription is closer to lapsing and getting a better deal as they sweeten it in order to maintain customers. No guarantee that'll continue to happen though.
