    This is what happens you have a day off work, stuck at home and you have a couple of Pentax DSLRs to play with and then the doodling starts ...

    Of course I'd never do this to my K7!

    Unless I had the proper red laquer and not red ink :tongue:

    Why not pink (much more popular here in Japan)?

    The Pentax Film SLR was known as the SLR Leica - (because of the size)

    They were good cameras - so good I bought a back up and have never used it (well one film thru it)

    still (almost) LNIB

    The Pentax glass that I have is still very good, (apart from this yellowish haze on some of the Takumar stuff), and I have started to use the 50mm f1.7 on my G1
