A K-10D should be a very cheap purchase these days, the difficulty may be in finding one with a low shutter count.
The sensor is wonderful below ISO400 as you are aware and no, it is not a silly idea to acquire one.
I have posted many images in this thread taken by K-10D and some Takumars, Soligors and Vivitars - along with other MF lenses.
Go for it

Just by chance, my latest is also silver and almost as small as magkelly's.
Here we go - Industar 50-2.
That wonderful old Russian 3.5/50 made by the gazillions and as cheap as chips.

I was taking some close-up pictures yesterday with the K-10D and a manual lens plus extension tube all M42.
Tripod and long exposure - c 8secs
For a while, every alternate shot was fine and every other shot the camera developed a humming vibration.
Selector was on MF. Of course the images were blurry
I am wondering what it was.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Sounds about right.
It is an extremely good camera.
Don't let the 10.2 megapixels worry you.
The reproduction from this camera's sensor is first class.
Remember it is at its best up to ISO 400 - after that it starts to limp a bit.
Use it where it can show its strengths and you will love it as we do.

Halloo Jean.
The lens has arrived and is rather lovely.
I think it is another Tomioka design and maybe made by them - who knows.
Here is a sample:

Thanks for the kind words Gavin.
Here is the wonderful K-10D with another Mamiya.
This time the 4.5/250 seen here:

Edit
I am amazed at the loss of definition when this image - flower below - posted.
It is much better than this. Occasionally this happens to my images when posted on this forum (ie loss of clarity and softening of the image) but it does not happen when the same images are posted on other sites.
Puzzled by that one.

Auto Rikenon M42 1.4/55
One of the sharpest 1.4/55mm lenses made by anyone.
Can't wait

It is easy to use with an M42 to PK adapter, so no real need to change the mount.
Congrats

Thank you for the kind words.
Haha - not the biggest to be sure.
I also have a Mamiya-Sekor 4.5/250 which is a beast by comparison.

Yep ..... the Mamiya RB67 lenses have no focusing helicoid so one has to be inserted in the setup.
Clumsy I know but good fun.

Sorry to labour this but I can't see what other reasons there would be to fix the auto focus.
Have you found other reasons to acquire this USB dock?
Thanks again

Many thanks.
I guess it will be a useful tool for those times when the lens misbehaves.
Does it fix lenses that have been dropped or accidentally mishandled resulting in inaccuracies, or is it a fix for variations in quality control.

Gratias.
Why does a lens need to have its AF re-calibrated?
