First started with Pentaxes nearly 40 years ago and have been using them on and off since. I have been shooting with a Fuji X-H1 for some time now but recently saw a used K1 in good condition and with a shutter count of 17,000 for £855.

Having bought it, I updated it to v1.51, attached an old Cosina M 19-35 (£75) I had lying around and went for walk in York. I was surprised and delighted to see how this combination worked:

Actually, I was astonished at how sharp the lens was and with the contrast and colour rendering. I also tried an old smc F50 f1.4 with equally good results - a happy bunny!
