New Pentax 35mm user

Hi guys, I am new Pentax user. I just switched over from Minolta 35mm (though I have most of the equipment still). I am currently using a Pentax MX (actually two of them). I made the switch because of the ability to use K-mount lenses across so many different cameras. Here is a picture of my main equipment:

Pentax MX, Vivitar 17-28mm, Takumar 135mm 2.5, Tokina AT-X 28-85, SMC Pentax-M 50mm 1.7

The empty spot will likely be for a longer zoom. Either Pentax or possibly a Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm. I also have a Vivitar 28mm 2.5. Hopefully, I can upgrade the 50mm to a 1.4 at some point, but I am in no rush.

Anyways, that's my equipment. I am glad to have found a strong Pentax community.

Welcome! You've picked an excellent film system.

That gigantic VF on the MX makes my eyes hurt, though! The thing is huge!
