Also, Nikons are nice and you can buy one similar in performance to a Pentax, but the downside (for me) to Nikon is that you can't use m42 lenses (like the wonderful Pentax SMC Takumars) on a Nikon without an adapter that contains an optical element (degrading image quality). I love playing with legacy glass and with Pentax you get all the screwmount lenses AND the long-lived k-mount manual and autofocus glass. LOTS of relatively inexpensive choices.
