I wanna play...but I've always been partial to the screw mount and early K-series Pentaxes.

Have fun.
This debate was a perennial favorite in photo magazines of the '70s. It makes even less sense now than it did then.
The answer now is "the one you like best", since not a single one of us will ever use these cameras and lenses as heavily as they were designed to be used. D@mn few did when they were current, nobody will now. Lens quality? yeah right. That one's been dead for decades too.
With the preference many (most?) have for getting another body rather than having one serviced, I wonder how many of either of these cameras are functioning anywhere near factory spec. Probably not many.
