The Spottie's self timer looks a little further towards the lens than normal, the MX's looks like it is slightly cocked, and the KM's looks OK.

This is the Pz1p that I picked up off of Ebay. I love my SF1 but Pz1p is light years beyond it. It's much faster focusing put's it way above the SF1 for shooting wild life. Now if I could just find one of those grips that I've seen but can't find.

This past summer, I was given a working Pentax PC35AF. I shot a test roll with it and then gave it to my sister knowing that she would love a little AF pocket camera. She took it with her on a trip to Italy and after her return, she showed me some of her photos taken with it. I was blown away. She had shot a roll of Provia 100F and nearly every shot was razor sharp and perfectly exposed. This little camera was producing images that rivaled images from my $900 MZ-S + FA 43/1.9 Ltd. kit. I knew I had to find. Due to my health problems, I can't actually wind this camera, so I was pretty excited when I found out that Pentax actually made a power winder attachment. How cool is that? I spend to much time on ebay as it is, so it didn't take long before I found a mint PC35AF and then a MIB winder.
I've yet to test it and I hope it all works.
I also found 5 rolls of Agfa APX 100 on ebay. Can't wait to shoot a roll of that with this little beauty.

I'm looking at a Pentax M 50mm 1.2 lens. I noticed it doesn't have a program setting like my "A" 50mm lens. Doe this not make it a good candidate to purchase? I like some input if I may.

Do you mean the K50/1.2? If so it's one of the best lenses that Pentax ever made and has a wonderful bokeh.

Pentax-M 50/1.2?? There is a Pentax-K 50/1.2 and Pentax-A 50/1.2, but no Pentax-M 50/1.2. Perhaps it is Pentax-M 50/2 (1:2 on the lens face)?

What is your Pentax-A 50? If a f/1.7 or f/1.4 or f/2 it is optically the same as the M-series lens with the same maximum aperture.

If it is K 50/1.2, there are people using them with dSLR. I use an A 50/1.2 on both my K2 bodies. Like Steve said, if it says M 50, it may be just a M 50/2.

I have a Pentax-A 1:2. it has the program "A" on it. This one looks earlier than that. They look sort of the same. Both have a "K" mount.

That is not an f 1.2 lens (1:1.2). It is an f 2. A k lens wont have a k, M, or A on. There wasnt a M 50 f 1.2 lens since it couldnt be made more compact which was the point of the M series. The k and A 1.2 were the same optically. The A has the aperture control and different iris.

It says the same thing as my "A" lens on the front. It is a an F/2 lens. I see that this is getting me in trouble here. I was just curious if anyone knew anything about the lens.
