On the next episode of "Guess the Camera..." It's the K200D. I used the 7Artisans 25mm @ f/1.8 and the photo was taken early in the morning when I couldn't sleep.

Oooooh, what an interesting game to play! Are these parts or accessories for the K200D?? Is there a thread yet?
On Pentaxforums.com (a great site for all things Pentax btw), I saw user reviews from as far back as 2009 describing their beloved K200D’s as having “slow AF” and being a bit “dated”, even then, which sort of made the camera appeal to me even more(!) Certainly didn’t put off the users and you notice, then and now, the astute ones using the body for old MF lenses. CCD sensor, Takumar lenses fitting straight on and those limited edition 21mm/43mm/77mm lenses all being able to work with AF, as well as the zooms, what more could one want for an enjoyable experience. You’d get some fantastically rendered files out of those combinations.

Here's my macro setup with the GM5. The softbox/diffuser is removed from the flash. My right middle finger is already callused and strained with bigger/heavier lenses. The edges of the 20mm pancake also grinds the left-hand side of my middle finger. It's still entertaining to see the tiny camera carry almost any lens.
