Hello from Rockville, MD!

Hi Everyone,

I've been a loyal and enthusiastic Pentax user since 1984, starting with a Pentax ME Super with the collection growing ever since, finishing with a K-5 shortly after it was introduced. I'm sure over time it will continue to grow more! All my cameras are useable and get used quite frequently. Here's the rundown of my collection:

Bodies:
H1a
Spotmatic
ME Super
MX (2, 1 chrome, 1 black)
P67
K5

Lenses:

28mm Super Takumar f/3.5
50mm Super Takumar f/1.4
50mm Super Takumar f/2
40mm SMC-M f/2.8 (the "Pancake")
50mm SMC-M f/1.4
80-200 SMC-M f/4.5
SMC Pentax 67 55mm f/4
Pentax Takumar 6x7 90LS
Pentax SMC P-DA 18-55mm/ f 3.5-5.6

I look forward to participating in this excellent forum with you all!

Cheers, Allan

Thank you all, I certainly will! And it's great to know of some folks nearby! The bulk of my work is from my Pentax collection, so examples will start appearing shortly. Thanks again!

Welcome to the forum! You have quite a history with Pentax.

I've always wondered why it takes so long for someone who's been involved with Pentax for so many years, to finally find this forum and participate.

I've asked myself the same question, I thought I might be the only one! I guess the important thing is I finally made it. Thanks again everyone!

Well I started using Pentax gear over 40 years ago. Just joined this forum a couple of days ago. Like cobbu2, I also had a lot of similar inventory although I sold all my M42 screw mount stuff and some other Pentax Kmount stuff some years ago.

Although I reside in MN, I took a class last summer in Rockville. I work for the feds (Veterans Affairs).

Oh yeah, Welcome cobbu2!
