Ahoy from Downunder

Hello all,

I am a casual film shooter; I have taste for fixed-lens rangefinders... but don't like it when they eventually break. Its sad when a repair costs many times the cost of a replacement.

Thankfully, I have come into possession of a pentax spotmatic sp with a smc 55mm 1.8 and really enjoy it. A gorgeous camera to use. Nice to know that the lenses can be used if the body ever kicks the bucket! Quite eager to try a few different focal lengths, haven't yet used anything outside the 35mm-50mm range. I quite fancy trying something wider.. 28mm perhaps.

Look forward to chatting with some other camera nerds. It seems the community is rather active here.

G'day VB. Yep, there are plenty of camera nerds on here, and Australians in increasing numbers. Check out the marketplace for 2nd hand lenses you can use with your Spotmatic.
