Hello from an old Pentax user!

Hi, I've had Pentax SLRs since 1971, first a Spotmatic II, then an Electro Spotmatic (black and sexy!), then a Pentax ME, which I still have. Recently I bought a Pentax MX from a charity shop (it works fine!), plus a Pentax-M 135mm. I've had a Tamron-F 85-210 zoom lens since its first release (1980?). The SLR dropped into disuse for a couple of decades, but more recently I've got it out and started shooting film again. I'm not sure about modern DSLRs, which seem a bit big and clunky, though I do have (whisper) Fuji X10.

Welcome to the forum, you make me feel like a Pentax new boy, my association with the brand only started in the early eighties.

I admit to being Nikon man before that.
