I have just cut down my collection to 2 cameras, I even sold my Pentax K5.
1 x Hasselblad 501c with 80mm (99.9% used) and 150mm lenses, I also have 3 backs.
1 x Leica M3 with Summilux 50/1.4 (colour) and Summarit 50/1.5 (B&W).

I'm tempted by other cameras, like Rolleiflex, Pentax 67 etc, but Iwill not cave in, for some time at least.

Later down the track I might get another Leica body with 0.72 finder and 35mm lens. This way I can have one body and lens for colour and another for BW.

The above setup might seem expensive, but it was a lot less than all my other lenses and bodies which didn't see any use. Now I have more cash for film.

Of course they don't, since people stopped buying it, they stopped making it many years ago. You will only find expired Kodak E6 now.
As my E100VS replacement I'm switching to Velvia 100 with 81A filter. For E100G, Provia 100f with 81A filter.
I find fuji films very cold...

Thanks, she's my old flatmate. Single and looking.

She's Korean, lives in Vietnam and think about moving to Japan. I guess you will have to relocate.

Hi,

I'm not sure if K5 screen fits K3. Maybe it's covered in the thread I have linked to. I know it fits all the K5 iterations.

Yes, both screens come with the shim kit. Most likely you will have to pull out the original metal shim and use this for adjustment. That's what I did. I pulled it out of my K5 before I sold it.

I only have one set of tweezers, that's why I would prefer to sell both of them together.

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/115-pentax-k-5/142241-best-screen-ever-ma...anon-ee-s.html

I think they are necessary if you are planning to use the K5 with older manual focus lenses.

Silhouettes are great... probably 1 stop underexposed. And I would also crop the solid black part in half. Around bottom 1/4 of the image.

You said you want shallow depth of field during daylight hours. In that case you want to use films with ISO100 or less, not ISO400... with ISO400 during daytime you will be shooting at f16 and 1/500. I'm not sure about camera specs, but if the max shutter speed is 1/1000, then you can only stop it down to f11.

At least with ISO100 (Ektar etc) you will be able to shoot at f16 at 1/125 or f5.6 and 1/1000.

Shadow detail can be overrated, this scene would look great if the trees and shrubs where just a silhouette...
If you want shadow details with Velvia, you will have to start using Grad ND filters, spot meter etc...

Pentax K5 DSLR, spare battery, 32GB + 8GB cards, RRS L-brack bracket, Pentax leather wrist strap (works with L-plate), focusing screen's S-type (split screen), canon ee-S (fitted) and oem.
Good condition. The eyepiece rubber has slight tear and the lens release button popped out. It needs to be glued back in, the instructions are on this forum. Comes with box.
$650 for the lot.

Pentax MX, meter misbehaves and the metal contact place below bottom cover need to be adjusted. I can't bother fixing it. The light and mirror seals have been replaced less than 1 year ago.
Otherwise than the misbehaving meter, works great. I will throw in Pentax ME Super for free... it has issue with rewinding, the feel rewind knob needs to be depressed all the time while rewinding.
$70 for both.

I'm selling all of my pentax gear.

Pentax FA 77mm f1.8 limited, AIV, black, $700.

Pentax FA 43mm f1.9 limited, MIJ, sliver, $450. Has a small white thread inside, it didn't have any affect on the photos I have taken with it on Pentax K5 or film.

Pentax K 50mm f1.2. $500. Comes with hood and has a very fine hairline scratch on the rear element. It's hardly noticeable unless viewed at the right angle in the right light. I tried to get photo of it, but it's not visible in it.

OP/Tech dual rear lens caps x 2: $10 each. Stack the lenses together to make them easier to carry around.

That's true, but there is a sudden rush of "test" images lately. The drop in quality is why I stopped checking the photo thread and get my photo fix in different places.

The difference is the light, overcast vs sunny. Film can't fix that.

Cuthbert, I like my lightmeters, I shoot fair bit of slide film, so it's good to be able to nail the exposure on each frame. I also know how to use my lightmeters to achieve certain look instead of 1 specific one. That's why I like the contrast metering on digisix. It's kind of like fake 20 degree spot meter.

Are you asking me or Pablom. I wish I could say mine were shot using sunny 16. But I cheat, I just got gossen digisix and love it. It actually confirms that all of the settings were sunny 16, since it displays settings in EV. It has a wheel to calculate the shutter aperture settings quickly. And also contrast metering which is useful.

The sunny parts were shot at EV15, EV13 for bright but cloudy, shaded or heavy overcast at EV12 and EV11. I was surprised as this guide states. http://www.andbethere.com/2013/05/the-ultimate-guide-to-sunny-16-rule-2.html

Well, the meter. Comes in more useful when shooting indoors or when out of the sunny 16 hours, although I have not checked the above guide how it cross references in those situations.
