Canadian returns to Pentax fold

My first real camera was a Spotmatic screw mount. It taught me so much about photography. I used to love being able to reverse a lens for really great macro shots. Now after years with unsatisfying automatic cameras, I picked up a used K-x and I am enjoying getting back into the art. I heard someone say that Pentax is the Linux of cameras. I think this seems accurate, I've also used Linux for years...

I want to explore macro photography [again].

Welcome, too bad you don't still have those screw mount lenses.

Yes I do wish I still had them, but I plan on getting another Super Takumar 28mm like I had soon.

I have ordered a focus screen to help (hopefully) with manual focusing. (I can't seem to figure out the diopter adjustment)
