Thanks for the replies, I am going to possibly pick up a Pentax MX with 50mm f/1.7 and 28mm lens, also a flash and camera bag. I know I don't need the 50mm and don't really need the camera, but it's only 35! Also, regarding the mechanical timer, I will definitely keep an eye out for one, they look brilliant! And thanks for the tip with the depth of field preview.
