Hello from the land of Oz

I am new to the PentaxForums but am a lifelong Pentaxian. I bought my first Pentax in the early 1980's, a new to me K1000. I have several older 35mm Pentax slrs and a 645. My first dslr was a IST DS. A few years later I picked up a K200D and had the IST DS converted to a dedicated black and white infrared body. I recently have purchased another K200D not sure what I will do with it. Maybe have it converted to dedicated IR body or set it up for my M42 lenses with a new focusing screen. I have been on Flickr since April of 2009, a link to my photostream if anyone would like to see what I like to photograph.

I look forward to learning from others here and making some new friends and helping if I can.
