comment Noise comparison for sensors the D800 vs the D600
I would say that Dynamic Range is the primary characteristic to look for when shooting landscapes...

comment Does cloudy, low-contrast light produce the best results for photos of fall foliage?
there's no such thing as "convert from raw to jpeg without adjustments" (even the default settings of any given program have built-in assumptions about how to interpret the raw data) ;-) maybe it's my monitor, I'm using the sRGB profile but it's not calibrated...

@AJHenderson Small cards... That might be an interesting, although it wouldn't prevent chimping and deleting xD

@AJHenderson Well, if you constraint yourself for no economic or practical reason whatsoever; I am really glad for you, you must be some kind of Zen guru. But that does not apply to most people I know (including myself): if it's free, we'll keep snapping without thinking until we get bored, run out of battery or space in the memory card, whatever happens first.

@PhilipKendall we both know that does not happen xD film also has other rewards, like the surprise when you develop it, encouraging you to "print" (well, get enlargements out of the negatives) and as an archival method it lasts virtually forever once it's properly developed (I'm scared since I dropped an external HD about 10cms and it was completely dead... luckily I had more backups).

Precisely because it is not free, film forces you to think and get the most of each shot. I think it is a good idea for someone that aspires to do something more than taking snapshots.

@baisun yes, you can use that lens; but I have to agree with mattdm. Try to get a Pentax-A glass if you can rather than the older Pentax-M. If you mount it in a modern DSLR you'll have aperture priority and what is more important: you won't need to do stop-down metering. I own a Pentax-A 50mm f1.7 and a Pentax-M 135mm f2.5 and I can totally recommend both (although I would love to have the 135mm in K-A mount!).
