I have a Nikon FM2n with 50mm 1.4, 28mm 3.5 and 55mm 3.5 macro.

It still gets used occasionally with B&W film.

AF400FTZ Failed

I have an old AF400FTZ flash which appears to have failed, it will not charge. I have left brand new AA's in it for several days to no avail, I have also tried this with fully charged NiCd's. I do get an occasional flicker on the ready and check lamps when turning on the power - then nothing.

Any suggestions? or do I assume this has failed beyond repair.

I'm not too worried about this, as I have other flashes, but it's been a useful flash over years and I'd be sad to see it go

Still at 999 on the Pentax EU website with no apparent additional offers.

PENTAX KP

Is there likely to be a time difference on when any offers become available?

With so many great offerings from Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc., why do you choose Pentax?

Like others - it's historical - I have good glass going back over 20 years that has plenty of life left in it. Add to this the the skill cap - if I'm 100% honest then I'd say (the best of) my kit is better than my skill level.

investing in another system wouldn't make me a better photographer - but selling up and switching manufacturer would make me a financially poorer one..

Ditto except that I swapped the DA35/2.4 on my DS for the DA40 a few days ago.

I'd assume the new APS-C flagship would be priced somewhat above the current KP prices, which gets very close to discounted K1-II territory. In which case I'd have to have a really good think about whether to go APS-C or FF.

Thanks for the warm welcome, a few specific replies to follow

Yes - I know about the e-books - I may pick one up for reference. I understand most of what the K3-II does, except for the multi-exposure modes. I think I know what these do - I'm just not sure when I'd use them.

I used to live in Glasgow for a while. I have quite a few picture from my film days of Cullin's and Munro's - MZ-10 with A28 2.8 on "orange"

Brings back memories

My interests are fairly general with no specific areas of specialisation. I used to do quite a bit of photography whilst hill-walking many moons ago, but I'm not really up to that at the moment. I am thinking of setting myself up a challenge - but I'm currently looking for a bit of inspiration.

Hi

Long term lurker, first time poster.

Been using Pentax since the late 1970's, with an MX (which still functions but probably needs new light seals). I passed on the later manual bodies due to being an impoverished student, getting into the auto-focus trend with an MZ-10 and later an MZ-5n.

I moved into the digital realm with an ist DS and recently purchased a K3-II to bring myself up to date.
