G'day all,

I've been an ME Super and 50/1.7 owner from 1981. That camera travelled with me on an Italian motorbike from Ireland, through Scotland and England, to Norway, Sweden and Finland within weeks of its purchase.
I later added a Vivitar 28/2.8 that I gave away only a couple of years ago, when the whole alt / manual lens scene was unknown to me and I hadn't shot film for many years.

I have just bought another ME Super with a three lens package, including the same model of Viv 28/2.8 that I owned previously.

I'm heavily into alternative and manual lens use on DLSRs these days and defected to Canon back in 2004. My first digicam however was a great little 3mp Pentax Optio.

I'm hoping to enthuse a family member to use the 2nd ME Super and I will also shoot some film with my own original black version.

Welcome to the forum, there's always room for one more Aussie if we all budge up a little.

Cheers to all above for the welcome.

kerrowdown - you live in a beautiful part of Scotland.

skunktail - that challenge to look at my film shots is daunting - means I have to do something...

Merci bien Jean, votre mésage est apprécié!
