Rainy evening to take a stressful run with the XT3. No regrets though 😎

I keep wanting to sell the m-mount glass I have, but it's like Khan and Kirk - "He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him." This camera & lens combo, for me, is so enjoyable to use. I guess, since relaxation and stress relief are 2 of the major reasons I enjoy photography, maybe I should just give in. :coffee-79:

That is a beast of a camera. I was tempted at one time to give one a try, because Pentax has some very nice lenses. I rented a DA 20-40 when I still had a K-30, and it was an impressive lens.

Thanks Tony. It is a beast. The K-1 and digital 645 series feel like they used my hands for the ergo modeling. Everything just fits. Kinda odd. :D

And I agree regarding the Pentax glass - not a large modern catalog, but some really nice lenses IMHO.
 
Tony- 10 minute job. The Canonet is one of the easiest cameras to work on. No wire connecting the top plate, and Pit for calibrating the camera for 1.5v batteries is easy to get to. Next time I pick up one for cheap I'll photograph the procedure. The worst problem for the Canonet: etched glass if someone leaves greasy fingerprints on the front element, which is very thin.
