Another pentaxian from Canada

Hello, i have been a pentax user all my life, my dad gave me my first pentax when i was 9 and have been shooting pentax ever since then. I worked in
photofinishing/custom lab/retail camera store for 30 years,and have used every pentax body right through the K5 and almost every lens pentax has ever made. The benefit of working in a camera store. Pentax just feels right in the hand.My dad bought his first pentax in 1961 when the camera clerk told him you can buy the Nikon outfit or if you want the best optical quality buy these new pentax's we just got in.

Welcome! Now the most important question is, does your store carry pentax?

Welcome to the forum, homestead65. I guess your line of work helped solve outbreaks of LBA.

Welcome to the forum, I spent a summer in the Huntsville area working at Deerhurst. Nice scenery up there. I think it was Cavalcade Lab that I bought my ME Super from many years ago, which I still have!
