Hi everyone,

The first camera I bought was a used K1000 back in 1984. I bought as I was going on a "once in a lifetime" vacation to Ireland. My parents had purchased a Sears KSX 1000 camera that had a 50mm f: 2.0 lens and a zoom lens that has long ago disappeared. Since I had access to these for my trip I wanted to buy a second body and a wide angle lens. One of the local camera shops recommended the K1000 and an off brand wide angle lens that would fit into my budget. About 5 years ago I started collecting cameras as a hobby. Since that time I have added a Program Plus with 50mm 1:1.7 SMC Pentax-A lens and most recently an SV with the Super-Takumar 55mm 1:1.8 lens.

Welcome! Are you looking to go digital, or do you plan on continuing with the collection?

Thank you, nice to be here. Probably going to stay with the collection. I just replaced the seals on the Program Plus and am planning on taking some pictures this Labor Day weekend and the following one during a local Blues festival. I do have a DSLR but it is not a Pentax.
