Hello everyone, happy to join you!

Hi there,
I'm not new to photography but for some strange reason I didn't own anything by Pentax until recently (somehow pushed by a Pentax-fan friend). And since I enjoy fixing old cameras (and other good old techincal items) I made my entrance to Pentax the hard way: stuck Pentax ME Super + stuck SMC-M 50mm 1:2 lens. Hopefully, if time allows me, the situation is going to change soon.
I'd be even more happy if in the process I could find out some useful techincal details that would help other people in need here.

Welcome to Pentax and the forum Daniel. You're experience in fixing old SLR cameras is a rare and valuable expertise. Other than owning a Spotmatic, I don't have a lot of experience with the film SLR's, however jump over to the Film SLR sub-forum. There are a lot of folks on this forum that have a ton of knowledge in that area.

Hi Ryan,
Thank you for your message. I haven't done SLRs yet, I've only worked on rangefinders. I mean I've been into SLRs, for various simple fixes (cocking blockages under the bottom plate, dirty viewfinders) but not down to the same level I went to with the rangefinders. But the experience will come. I've got another stuck ME Super and I'll try to compile a working one from the two dead ones
