Greetings from Warsaw!

It is an honor and pleasure for me to register on this Pentax forum.

My first camera was a soviet ZENIT TTL, but the second, that actually pulled me into the World of Photography was:

PENTAX SF10 with AF 28-80mm.

I own two digital Nikon SLR's and a set of Sigma 10-20 f/4-5,6 + Nikkor 18-200 VR .........with all focal lengths covered, except that the fun of "The Photography" was lost somewhere on the way...

I was recently looking for a simple, cheap and efficient manual/film SLR system for my 17 years old son.

First serious offer I got from my friend's-friend was a perfect good Pentax MX with almost brand new SMC-M 24-35mm f/3,5.

All in all I've bought a K2 for my son...... and will rather not let the MX out of my hands ;-)

I'm coming back to film and to Pentax.

I was lucky to have a friend to advice me on the first buy.

I really like my MX, it's so much fun!!! I will be sad to have to give the K2 away to my son. Still time to get a K-1000 ;-)

As for the pictures - I have to get my first film rolls processed. I hope it will be something to show.

Thanks for warm welcome.

Feels like home here.

Welcome to the forum, the use of old school film cameras is still a joy, try and get your hands on an LX (MX's big brother).

Got a PDF of LX manual. Caused me a headache and a "must-get-it-some-day" illness.
And..... ok.... did it: started a K-1000+50mm f/2 bid and big chances are I will win.
K2 will stay.

Mu collection

My small collection.
Just as-is due to the fact that I'm on the subject just 2 months. ;-)
Got LBA/CBA cured a little. (In Poland CBA, actually states for Central Bureau of Anti-corruption.)

Up/left - to low right:
K2 manual; SMC-M 80-200mm f/4,5; reverse mount ring (52-55mm) + LOMO M42/K adapter;
K2+SMC-M 135mm f/3,5; KX+SMC-M 24-35mm f/3,5; ME+SMC-M 75-150mm f/4+ME Winder;
Osawa MC Mark II 135mm f/2,8; Osawa MC Mark II 35-135mm f/3,5-4,5; SMC-M 50mm f/1,7; SMC-M 50mm f/2; MX+SMC-A 35-135mm f/3,5
Backed up by Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE; SilverFast SE plus v.6.6.2r5; Neat Image and my Right eYe organic lens+ Brain Plus 2013 software.

Picture taken with Nikon D70+Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm f/4-5,6. ISO 800 at 20mm f/5,6 1/13sec handheld. Light source..... single Osram fluorescent light - not good at all.
