Remember you can have lots of fun shooting old lenses (especially Pentax ones) on any mirrorless out there, all you need is the appropriate adapter. Old manual lenses generally work better on mirrorless cameras than they do on Pentax DSLRs (because of the crippled modern K mount).

I made a post about the fotodiox pentax to sony stretch adapter I bought and so far I am very pleased with it.
it even has drop in nd filters for video work, and the Godox flash system seems to function in ttl mode even with pentax lenses... will have to do more testing to be sure but a couple test shots look to be properly exposed using flash on a A 28mm 2.8 pentax lens with the adapter on a sony a7iii
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

You can have lots of fun shooting very modern pentax lenses




You just won't know what aperture you have set
Cheers

You'll be back in the fold here before you know it when you still haven't got used to it!
They're handy as a camera for situations that suit them (say carrying round as a just in case camera like an MX-1) but there's nothing like the handling and real viewfinder of a Pentax DSLR for serious photography.
Before the MX-1 I carried a Fuji x10 which is similar in theory but the menu system is so different to Pentax's I could only leave it on a basic setup and hope for the best.
(PS I didn't really think those videos were yours!)
