For the few times I use it I am willing to be led astray.

I also have a wonderful trio of lens, a 60mm Distagon, 100 Planar and 150 Sonar for my Hasselblad.

Just finished rereading this thread as it is very interesting. Besides my Sigma 70-200 that I don't always take with me and the two cheapie zooms 18-50 and 50-200 for convenience when casual shooting my set of lenses is the 15-21-40-70 SMC Limited and can see no reason to think about changing, adding to or uograding. The 70 is my favourite on both my K5iis and my MZ7, simply love the 15 however have not used the two newer ones the 21 and the 40. I use a small compact camera bag, one I bought for a trip with a borrowed X100 that will hold 2 of the lenses, a couple cards and a spare battery and I hardly feel it when walking about. Certainly cannot do that with 3 star lenses.

The problem for Pentax is that I am more than satisfied with the DA Limiteds. If I do need a macro my wife has a Tamron 90mm so perhaps that is cheating. These compact lenses even feel like the little jewels that they are. And all use 49mm filters too. My only complaint is that I had lost the lens cap for the 70 and took out a loan to but a replacement cap. 😀

It is similar to the Waterhouse stops on a couple of my LF lenses.

I agree with you. I most likely would have purchased a 55-300 PME lens for my K5iis so I a, personally sorry that Ricoh did not make this happen but I understand there has to be a cutoff point and the company needs to move forward.

Pentax Mirrorless?

The early 80s had auto exposure becoming more common and then the auto focus trend. Much brand swapping and upgrading during that decade. And auto focus SLR were much better than the point and shoot cameras, or at least most of them. I wonder if 2005 to 2015 will be considered the heyday of DSLR.

It's too bad I don't have anyone that needs killing as I still have 4 rolls of Neopan 400 135 and seldom shoot that format anymore.

If you are used to a MZ5N then none of the dslr will be too small and certainly not too light. Before I had my K5iis I had a Kr and it's mode was right where your shutter speed dial is hence I got movie mode instead of a faster Hutterites speed etc. The more advanced models have less modes so less things to ignore.

My MZ5N had its mirror gear go on me earlier this year so having to make due with a MZ7

There was a lot more available a decade or so ago. I got a 4X5 enlarge for $30 that had been donated by the city police, got a darkroom for the sink for 30 bucks, 4 current top end enlarging lenses for free and a 57 Elwood enlarge for free.

Yep that is the older method, couldn't remember all the letters in its name. My Nikon CS8000 is hooked up to a computer running Vista. Scanning and loading podcasts is about all I do with that computer, and i guess storing emails.

One disadvantage of older scanners may be the interface. My Nikon 8000 for example uses a firework and some scanners even older methods.

What Does Your "Significant Other" Think Of The Pentax Brand?

My wife is the main reason we stayed with Pentax rather than going to Nikon. At the time she got her first dslr I worked at a 0 lace where we shot Nikon plus had a huge number of Nikkor lenses for the high speed cameras but we had started with Spotmatic F the Sf1 and she wanted to stay with Pentax. She would still be using the K10D if she hadn't broken 8t in Havana and since then she has a K5 with no interest in upgrading. She would rather have another pinhole camera than a new digital camera.

She occasionally also shoots large format and Hasselblad but usually prefers Holgas and Dianas.

I process her film and she prints my colour digital images however she is fully capable of developing and printing in the darkroom when she wants.

She is much finer with me buying gear than selling it too. She might be a keeper, her 50 year probationary period is up in 2025.

More Limited lenses

A D FA limited would no more need to be compatible with a film camera than is the DA limited. Unless they came out with a compact DA 150 limited with a 49mm filter size I have all the Limiteds I am ever going to have however if I owned the K1, limiteds wider than the 31 are needed. Compact quality lenses around say 17 and 25 and updating the 3 existing ones would provide Pentax shooters with something unique and good.

But if they are expanding the line what will you buyers call them as there will be more than the 3 amigoes and with not knowing just how many, the battle on this forum for a new name will be quite intense.

Imagine it will be DA F limiteds. The most needed, especially wider than 31mm. Not that I see myself needing more than the 4 DA Limiteds I now have.

I've had the so call import expert at Canadian Tire spend 5 minutes looking for where the ignition was in my Saab 900. I think I was getting new windshield wipers and it was raining. The lens release is not as easy to spot on the K01 as other Pentaxs, rude or ignorant remarks are easy to spot.

I too will stay with Pentax. I have stayed with Hasselblad and never even started with them much before they discontinued production of the V system.

If I was to outlive my Pentax digital gear I would buy a bridge or compact camera or something like that as by then I should be close to 80 or 90 years old.

And a tablet was a smallish flat piece of rock you would chisel in letters. I can say that cause 50 years ago I was only in Grade 11.
