Getting near the end of my Associates in Fine Arts (with emphasis on Photography), I'm down to just a few classes photo related, so next semester I'm taking Film Image Processing and Advanced Digital Imaging (after which the only photo related classes I have left would be my choice of either alternative formats, or view camera). For the last 5~6 years I been pretty much only shooting with Olympus Mirrorless, a little before that it was a mix of either using my Pentax K-10D DSLR and a vast array of film cameras (working for a vintage camera store had perks, like 100+ years of combined experience to pick from, and being able to shoot and develop everything from a minox up to a 5x7 Linhof). And before that was the first Canon Digital Rebel (the old 6.3megapixel little guy). Because of the film 'phase' I'm no stranger to just roughing it full manual with an adapted lens and manual controls and all that. Right now because of the adaptability of Olympus I still have three Pentax lens in my arsenal, a Pentax-M 50/1.4, Tamron SP 90/2.8 Adaptall 1:1 Macro, and a Rokinon 85/1.4. So to me it makes the most sense to just go that route for 35mm, especially since on the Leica Threadmount side, I only have a Industar-61L/D (55/2.8), Industar-10 (50/3.5), and Jupiter-11 135/4, so using my Fed-2A wouldn't be all that fun. I do still have my Pentax MZ-6 body though. But I don't like the lack of a split-prism focusing screen (it's just a flat matte screen behind a 0.7x 92% viewfinder). But wondering if it might be worth my while to get a little adventurous, either going full mechanical like a K1000, or different system altogether (ie: Olympus OM-1 etc and a 50/1.4). Mainly because If I'm going to go film, I want the external controls, and a nice big viewfinder with the prism ring or split prism for manual focusing (since none of my pentax lens are AF). Thinking budget of 150-175 if I do. If the lens/etc wasn't "Collector" status now, I would try for a Canon P or the Olympus Pen-FT with a 38/1.8 (though the latter wouldn't normally be suitable for the class being a half frame), both of which I once owned. Just to show off, some of the film stuff I did years ago on my own, self-developed/print out of the bathroom.
