Hello from Switzerland

Hi all,
not sure what I shall write here ...
I took my first pictures with my fathers Spotmatic back in the 70ties, I later got a Praktica (as my father didn't want to share his Spotmatic ;-), then moved on to Canon A1 and T90 later on. Sometimes in the eighties I got myself a Pentax Auto 110 Super, skipped the whole Autofocus area. As FD glass is uses in our days I could start on the green field for DSLR so I switched back to Pentax *ist DS, got myself K20 and then K5.
Main reason to get back to Pentax was size of the cameras, SMC glass, IQ
Lately I started to get old old Pentax stuff from the film area on ebay, so I'm a proud owner of LX, Super A, ... and a 645N. Right now I shoot almost as much film as I do digital, specially LX and 645 are cameras to die for. Next project will be to set up a scanning workflow for all the film material on one hand and on the other hand to get s small dark room for b&w film.
I do mainly landscape, travel and street photography, but would not limited myself to this (I also did work for vinyl single covers).
I make my living out of IT work for a big pharma company.
