My Most ususual Pentax

I'm Xatnep#1,
I have used several Asahi Pentax film cameras.
The most interesting Pentax needed to have the shutter curtains replaced and was done by a local repairman. Afterward, the focus was way off. He attempted to focus it in and again failed miserably. Joe then suggested I take it to a man who worked at NFL Films. Rich adjusted it to focus through infinity. What pictures it took! It was sharp as a tack. Unfortunately, it was dropped, lens first.

I took it to a dealer who sent it off somewhere where they reset the focus back to infinity. It never was the same.
