Tau Kita robotic spaceship investigated some obscure planet (orbiting third from its star). There were strict evidence of life and even some rudimentary civilization on that planet. Inhabitants were capable of making minimal clothing. For food they manage to fetch water creatures with primitive catching tools. But after careful study Tau Kita science committee advised against direct contact with this planet population. “You see, this civilization is way behind. There will be no benefits in communication with it at least for the next ten thousand years. Let our descendants to explore it again later” - told chief scientist .

I have KR-5sv. Its shutter will not work if advance lever returned all the way forward. I have to move that lever slightly back for shutter button to work.

ignorant question from a new K-5iis owner (and an FA zoom)

That's normal. And I do not think it is K5ii specific. When aperture ring set into A position camera sets lens aperture according to the value selected by camera aperture control. In any other ring position camera can't control aperture. Lens itself can't convey aperture value back to a camera (such interface does not exist neither in lens no in camera).

I have and really like Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 24 f3.5. It has the pin to open aperture, but it is stuck and does not work on my lens. For me It is not a problem (I use it with adapter on digital). But when you will buy be sure to ask that it does work on the lens for sale.

I can't event think about shooting single handed. I can't produce sharp image that way. Mostly (especially with manual lenses) I attach dedicated DIY left handle to the camera and always keep my left hand on it. Right hand does all the lens/camera manipulation.

There is K-01 mirrorless camera as well. All K-mount less will work with that. With focus peaking it suites well for lenses with manual focus. Better than K-5, I believe.

Jpeg images you uploaded are too small to make any conclusion. DNG files are not accessible, alas. You are the only one who finds image quality of Q-S1 better of Q-7. The reviewer on the Pentax forum
did not find any difference regarding IQ between them and I share this opinion.

That disturbing. I have a benefits service on my job: for small monthly amount they can provide you with lawyer service. I never used it myself but some people did use it. Normally lawyers just evaluate your question and if indeed something in it they send the letter on behave of you to the party, which causes the trouble. Works like a charm. But that was toward small companies: like some contractor etc. Will it work with behemoth like Amazon?
