Have you experienced pressure to switch systems?

I'm just an amateur enthusiast so no pressure to switch. Either way I enjoy using Pentax cameras and equipment too much to even consider switching. If I were to go professional (which is not in my game plan at all, ever), and I had to use a different system for whatever reason, I'd be using that different system for work and Pentax personally. But I refuse to use Canon. I've felt their cameras. They feel terrible compared to Pentax.

I just bought a Pentax K2 for the handsome sum of $15. Unfortunately it's a junk camera but it looks amazing. Shutter speed isn't correct, DOF preview button is tough to depress, ASA and exposure compensation rings are near impossible to turn, the timer won't function (it times but doesn't control the shutter) and the winder is a bit funky too. Oh, and the light meter doesn't work but I'm not sure if it's a battery issue yet. I looked up some media to try to repair it but it's way beyond my limited skill set. A Vivitar SL35 is more up my alley. Anyway, I bought it mainly for a still life shoot for class. There was also a MV-1, ME, ME Super, K1000, and a Super Program. There were doubles of 1 or 2 of these cameras but I forget which. To be fair, I wanted to take the K1000, ME and the K2 home but they were all junkers and I only need 1.

I'm just looking for these lenses so I can take a still life picture for my photography class. I'm pretty set on lenses I want to use. Just need 1 or 2 Nikon lenses. I'd prefer using the MX because it's prettier than the F2 but I can't use what I don't have.

I just bought a Pentax MX but it hasn't arrived yet. I wanted to use it for a still life shoot I need to do for my photo class but I just realized it'll come a week too late. Fortunately I have a Nikon F2 I can use but only 1 Nikon lens to use with it. Might have to take a ride to a camera store that specializes in older equipment to see if I can't pick up a good old lens on the cheap.

My vote still goes to hockey players. Who strap sharp blades to their feet. Who pull out their own teeth. In the middle of a game. And then get right back in the play.

If that's the case then, around here, Pentax is All American Drive-In except in popularity. Been around since the '60s, changed hands a few times, building is still exactly the same as it was 50 years ago but the internals have changed. Still uses the same original recipe too. Very popular here on Long Island in Nassau County.

It is. The instructor is actually using one of the Canon EOS Rebels. But I didn't include him in the list so it's really about 4 Canon Rebels.

Well the tally from my last photography class is in:
2 Nikon D3X00/D5X00 series
3 Canon tX/tXi series
1 Canon P&S
1 Sony A6X00
1 Canon EOS R with (I think an 85 1.2 but I'm not sure)
1 unknown P&S
1 camcorder (he's going to have a LOT of fun in a still photography class)
1 with no camera yet
4 with an unknown or unconfirmed camera (because I didn't see them with a camera or couldn't see what they have)
And myself with the lone Pentax in the class.

I just received a Mestos PD-K3 L-bracket for my K-3II. I also have the Really Right Stuff K-3 l-bracket but it's too chunky and large and heavy for my liking. I tried the Mestos on and it's a world of difference. I think I'll actually be keeping this l-bracket on the camera unless I need to use the battery grip.... Speaking of, I'm now trying to get the PD-K3H for the grip too but I'm not sure if I should...

Ouch. That looks like a total loss. I don't care how uncommon a lens like that is, if its a total loss, it's not worth it.

One thing I learned from working at a State Park beach is that no matter the tool you use, you can always find... "Alternative" uses for it.

So from the spring photography class that I'm taking, out of 18 out 19 students:
•most don't have a camera or have a point-and-shoot/compact
•a couple have Canons
•some have Nikons, one person has a D600 I think
•one has a Sony A6X00 series
•and I have a Pentax. I thought I heard someone else say Pentax as well but I didn't hear very clearly. I'm also the person with the most lenses and equipment after the professor apparently. Professor's first camera was also a Pentax.

I'm not one of the people who will be buying this lens, I don't think I'll ever be buying it, but I'm excited nonetheless! I can't wait to see this, the 85mm and the new camera along with whatever else they're planning on releasing!

Actually I think a logical progression wouldn't be a camera with a sensor resolution double that of the previous but, based on recently passed camera releases, a 2020 FF camera with 36Mp and a 2021 APS-C camera with 24Mp.
