Drinking the Kool Aid

Hello Everyone,

I'm back to drinking the kool-aid at Pentax( first camera I ever bought with my own $$$$, Sf-1 with zooms to cover the range ). I've been shooting under the Nikon badge and though I don't plan on selling my D800s, I do plan to get into some amazing Pentax cameras. I have recently purchased 3 ME Supers, a Spotmatic, and an MX. I still have my old SF-1 but am now looking to get into some FA ltds. I've shot a ton of rolls with them and as soon as I get scanning.... I'll start posting! And how am I funding this you may ask( limiters are not cheap! )? I'm leaving the Leica club.

So a simple hello to everyone, I look to you all for guidance and support.

I hope this finds everone well,
Jeremy Pangilinan

Hello Iksobarg,

I'm just a bit tired of carrying around the tanks of the d800s around. I love them but if I'm taking portraits of my GF, I don't always need all that camera. I'm in the opinion, that all I'll need is a K-30/K-5/K-01 and some limited lenses. Who wants to wear a back brace anyway when carrying your gear around. I also feel a bit disconnected when shooting a leica rangefinder. I love a prism and that way of shooting. If I want a small film camera, I'll shoot my MX and a limited( I have yet to purchase any...but I love what people have been showing out there ). Pentax has made a great mechanical camera in MXs and I plan to just enjoy making images with something completely known to me in terms of format. I'm in hopes that I will find a limited soon and also will start scanning so I can share with people. Also, having a DSLR would speed the process too.
