Hello from Wellington Australia NSW

Hi to all , I am a Pentax user and Collector (addict) . I have 82 Pentax cameras ,from the first Asahiflex through to the latest 645D . I started shooting with a Pentax SFXn in the 80's followed by a lovely MZ5n before the digital revolution hit. I always hungered after the Pentax 645's & 6x7's not being able to afford them at that stage in my life .
Now that I have paid the mortgage I have concentrated on researching and collecting all things Asahi , I even have a bottle of Asahi beer sitting in with my Camera's.
As I have time I will try to upload pics of the rarer models that I have collected such as the 645PAMS ,645J and transparent models.

At the moment I am searching for the elusive Pentax Nocta outfit , the closest I have come is a German 2003 Auction catalog .
Any one that can help me with documentation or decent pics would be much appreciated.

Nice to have you aboard.
Pretty awesome collection you must have. Look forward to seeing some pix.

Wellington eh? Probably a good location. All your gear will be nice and dry - safe from humidity, fungus etc.

Some very cool gear there.

I imagine the inside of your place probably looks like Michaels Camera Museum
