New guy on list

Hi everyone,

I've been using a Pentax camera of on kind or another for 40 years or so. My first one was a K2 film body I bought from a fellow photographer in 1971. Since then I have had or have a Mx,Me,3 Super programs, Kx, and a IQZoom140 that I carried as a backup for a long time. I also have many lenses, most of them pentax manual film lenses too.
I recently found a used K2000 on Craigs list and have been getting used to not having to load film every 24 or 36 shots.
I live 50 miles away from Yellowstone Park and do alot of nature and wildlife photo's but not with the K2000 yet.

Welcome! Just in case you're still interested in film, I wanted to inform you of the film discussion forum here Pentax Film SLR Discussion - PentaxForums.com.
