Why did you fall for Pentaxís autofocus? I thought one of the standard complaints about Pentax was that its AF sucked...

I don't know - I like Kai's videos, and it's nice that he actually is looking at and sharing Pentax.

Getting a Spotmatic CLA'ed?

The price for a CLA is likely around $150 in local currency. A full camera rebuild due to mechanical issues, etc. will likely run you $300-400 or more...

I would also recommend the CLA service. A good CLA for a camera that you're planning on using frequently is worth it, and likely would put another 10-20 years on the camera's lifespan.

It's definitely #2 for me. A lot of these show very professional work though; your subjects and you should be proud!

I wish I had the disposable income to afford a $2500CAD second hand lens. Unless I can start monetizing my photography, I'm firmly in the world of sub-$500CAD lenses.

Thanks! I like the lens - it seems a lot sharper than the lens reviews seem to give it. The leaf shutter is interesting - I'm not too sure how often I'll use it, but it's handy to have a higher sync speed possible for flash work.

I have a late model Pentax 67 55mm f4 coming to me soon; 28mm is one of my favourite focal lengths in 35mm, so I'm super excited to play with it.

From my test roll shot at the local Garlic Festival two weekends ago; I had bought the 67 from a local shop quite literally the day before, so I was itching to get out and use it and see the results of my first roll.

Man, this family shot just has me wishing cameras never adopted that flat black, curvy, big grip, and smoothed out pentaprism design that everyone has. I love the K/M/Super Program look, and would instabuy an APS-C sensored MX-lookalike. While I love the KP for that throwback look, it just doesn't go far enough, not even in the silver colourway.

Mind you, this is coming from someone who finds the Speed Graphic to be a sexy camera, so... :-S

Under what circumstances would that scratch impact the photograph? I'm guessing it would show up during strong side light or flare, correct?

Can you post pictures of the black one? I'm super-interested in the HD40.

If you like the FA35 that much, have you considered picking up the DA35 Ltd? Sure, it's a different optical formula, with it being about a stop slower, but the right focal length, and macro capability (ultra sharp rendering and magnification).
