An ME and MZ-S

Took these out today with a dozen rolls of film.

Only two lenses, the 43mm Ltd and the 77mm Ltd.










What a joy to use. Just being able to have a large bright viewfinder and full field of view. The exposed films will be developed tomorrow and scanned, then some prints will be made.

Highly recommended for those who have FF glass and access to a film body. The 43mm on cropped CMOS is an odd lens. On its intended format, it is a stunner!

Now imagine it has a 16Mp 36x24mm sensor in it.

Very nice!

You got through a dozen rolls of film in one day?

Another lens to try on film bodies is the 40mm.

I use it with my MZ6 and get very good results.

As for the MZ-S, nice looking camera, I'd like one but tere as rare as hens teeth and expensive when they turn up. You have to pay for quality...

After only a week with the MZ-S I will agree it is lovely to use. Feels like the K5 but the operation is quite different, so much so that I keep looking at the back after taking a shot to check it!

Finding my way around it was not difficult, typical of Pentax to put things where you want them. The only thing that caught me out was the date imprinting on the photos. I had it on for the first roll and had difficulty finding where to turn it off. All in all the handling is intuitive and comfortable, everything feels solid and well built but not heavy or large. Although the controls are different from the DSLR's, some are the same, like the on/off/depth of field preview.

All in all I'm very pleased with it.

That would have been the MZ-D - the prototypes had a 24x36 sensor.

Fantastic pair I've been shooting more film recently, and have just picked up an MZ-S to go with the ME Super. Looking forward to putting some rolls of Velvia through it. Had exactly the same thoughts with the lens combination too. I'll be looking out for a 43mm Ltd soon.

I'm rationalising my photo gear and want to end up with one manual film camera, one AF film camera and the K5ii. I've been thinking about swapping the ME Super for an MX, but it's hard because an ME Super was my first SLR and first Pentax
Panasonic G80, GX80, Pentax K-1, Pentax K-3, Pentax MX, Mamiya 6.
