Nice, am I correct assuming that the DA lenses only shoot wide open on film cameras?

No, DA lenses are basically like any K mount lens with the aperture ring set to the "A" position. You can shoot in various modes using any A series or later body. With some bodies you are limited to P or Tv mode. The MZ-L allows for P, Tv, Av, and M mode.
With K and M series bodies you are limited to minimum aperture only.

Not that easy! The best catch of yesterday's hunt (with a brand new Soviet Zenith 12XS) was a 1978 VW Westphalia van.

There seems to be a lot of American car collectors, and car shows in Sweden if that is close to you.

From a local car show in Oregon. Pentax 67, 75mm f4.5, FP-4+

You won't find them on the car lots, but you may have good luck if you hit the car shows. Here might be a good reference:

Jesus Colton that riviera shot is bang on! Perfect colours for ektar. And I'm such a sucker for the Rivs. I'd have one if I lived over there for sure.

Thank you. It's a pretty sweet Riviera. I've always liked Rivieras as well.
The Riviera is now gone, but this Electra 225 convertible is still there for sale.

Don't tell my dad...he collects Buicks and would love to put that convertible in the garage next to the '68 Electra 225 Limited.

Leica M3, Summilux 50mm f1.4 v2 and Ektar 100.
I'm still getting used to using rangefinder and a lot of photos are a bit of a miss, but so far I really like it.
