Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

The K1.2 looks very good. I was impressed with the Tak so I splurged out on a K55mmf1.8 for the convenience of the mount. I believe it's optically the same, certainly produces the same look:

The SMC Pentax-A 50mm F1.4 is a fantastic lens for IR, which in fact is what I use it for most. I nowadays use it on a converted Sony Nex 5N, but here's a couple taken on a Pentax.
The blurriness at the bottom of the first one is due to the window it was taken through and not the lens.
