Old Pentax User

Hi. I'm new to this forum, but have been shooting Pentax for over 40 years. Bought my Spotmatic new in 1970. As I told a friend a few years ago, why switch when I own some of the finest glass ever made.
Anyway, got a K-7 last year when the Spotmatic stopped working. Still using the same glass, however.

Yes, that the beauty of Pentax - by the way, what lenses do you have?

Greetings and welcome, Bythorn. I just joined in January and am also an "older generation" Pentax user. Started with th SP-1000, just before Pentax finally came out with the K mount. Still have my film bodies and made sure to keep all my old M lenses. Sure, I have some fully automated glass for my K100D, but some of my best wildlife art has been shot in pure manual mode with that DSLR and my classic M Taukumar 200mm F4. (Even works with the old Vivitar K manual 2 teleconverter).

Looking forward to having you as part of the Forum.
