We can't forget that, they do have an agenda, it's a very different site to the one a initial registered to back in 2001. Bashing is popular and Pentax is unfortunately the main target of many sites and channels.

Impressive numbers, I tried 2 sets of eneloop on my K30 and never had those numbers. With auto or Ni-MH I never had a better results the original lithium battery the camera gives up long before the eneloop are exhausted. The battery sets work great on flash and put out more than 2500mA on a 0.5A load.
I'm now trying this with better results that the eneloop so far.

You forgot the best quote... :)
"It's included here because it's one of those rare products that deserves to be celebrated: a love letter, in effect, from a manufacturer to its customers. The K-1 was packed with all the special features that Pentax users had come to appreciate in the company's APS-C DSLRs, and being full-frame it was fully compatible with their collection of lenses going back decades - something that Pentax shooters had been waiting for, for a long time."

It's true, Samsung had it all and leave, Ricoh is trying to make work, sloooowly, but trying.

First attempt at a challenge, went for a tighter crop as I really liked the path to the bridge but not the car on the left.

My workflow too, digikam <-> darktable <-> gimp for the details.
Rawtherapee has some advantages, for me I can get better results with least effort when compared to darktable, but if need, darktable's extra effort is worth it.

Using "pepperberry farm" logic my favourite range isto 35 to 50, I have 6 lens for that range, I thought I had too much, I was wrong, it's a useful measurement unit

According to ExposurePlot jpg exif lens length analyzer for photographers my 2019 was centred around 25mm, mainly because of the new toy the oly tg-6.

I'm sorry for the first vague request for help. I've contacted the seller and it's a failure of shutter mechanism, so it's a no go for me.

Thank you for you attempt :)

What he said, I started with B/W 100 and wished I started with 400 or 800, will be fixed on the next roll.

My naive film plan is to develop with CINESTILL DF 96 Monobath Powder (Chemistry) - fotoimpex.com analogue photography a scan it with the KP.

I wanted the lightest manual focus camera possible, that worked with the DA lens and had Aperture on the viewfinder... I ended up with a 0 click MZ-m, I love it, even with all that plastic glory, hoping that it lasts more than the reviewers say it will.

I found a cheap one on ebay with a busted shutter and wanted to know if some one made the effort to fix it. Searching the forum I found some complains about non working shutters on the *ist.

I would go for a DA40mm or 21... no the 40, you can't really go wrong with any of them. Just count with the slow focus throw of the 35 macro.

Thank you for this, it confirms my experience, the sigma is better near 150 then 500mm, but still good value.
