A combination of old and new. Now I wonder if I am evolving or digressing with age?

Nice camera, how is the Notkon in comparison to the Pentax K 50 mm f1.4?

Good luck, IntoTheLens! A common issue with these is that the winder will skip frames. In mine, I just kept working the winder for a couple hundred shots (no film) and now it doesn't skip anymore. I guess they just get a bit lazy and out of shape, and need the exercise

I'd love to see what you get out of the 50 and the 31!

I just received my P30t today. It's in a really good condition, looks almost new. The seller was nice enough to include 2 fresh cells. But I'm not sure I undestand how the metering system works. I put my 31mm lens on it to test it. From what I can make out of it, I can either use it in Av mode, Tv mode or TAv mode if the aperture and speed dials are bots on A. But how and where do I set the ISO? Cheers!!

I like that Hi-Matic. I'm looking for the "7sII" variant at an affordable price.

Unfortunately, it's a DX-coded camera--it reads the ISO code from the film canister, and you can't change the ISO unless you tinker with the coding by changing the pattern of silver and black. There are instructions on the internet telling how to do that.

One of the few shortcomings of the P series cameras, lack of ISO adjustment, but hardly a serious lack. If they had fit a mechanical shutter into the P body, I would say it is better than an MX, but as much as I like the P30t and P3n that I have, my MX beats them because of the viewfinder, and mechanical shutter and view of shutterspeed and aperture settings. If they could have also fitted a match needle as well as the LED system, then the MX would have been perfect.

Here's a pic the P30t I just got with an FA50f1.4 (shot with my cellphone). Will take some better pictures when I get a chance. Thanks to everyone for your help by the way. This looks like a fun and challenging little camera.

FWIW, the P30T doesn't have a Tv mode, just Av, P, and M.
If you set the aperture ring to A, the camera defaults to P mode regardless of where the shutter dial is set, IIRC.
Great camera though.

Oh, my! That looks to be a significant amount of work and so very well done. Speechless.
