Pentax of course

Hi everyone.
Im from the east coast of Canada.
Started with an MX and never looked back. Had it, still have it, and when I leave this world it's comming with me.
Waited for Pentax digital cameras to have bullet proof offerings and when the k-5 showed up, I was all over it.
Love reading Pentax Forums.
... Randy

Yes indeed.
Have three 50mm 1.7 lenses from my other film cameras. (Me Super, A-3000, and a cheap plastic Ricoh body I used for around salt water.)
I also have a Takumar 135mm 2.5 that produced some nice images as long as you were aware of it's limitations and were very careful about flare.
The 70-210 I have is redundant to me now. I also have the 28mm 2.8
Picked up a 31mm limited, a 77mm limited, a 15mm limited to go with a 55-300 f/4-5.8, and an 18-135 for nasty weather.
Hope to pick up faster zooms in the future.
