Back to Pentax

Got into Pentax cameras by accident while looking to buy a Nikon years ago. At a used camera show I saw a Nikon FM2 in the case, looked good, right price and when I inquired about purchasing it I was given an old scratched 'pos' because the one in the case was a display only camera. Being upset by the ruse I ventured on to another seller and saw a Pentax MX. Better price, better condition, love at first site and it came home with me. Kismet!

I now own the MX, Super Program, ME Super, Spotmatic SPll and in a few days a K5lls when Adorama delivers it. I also have several lenses, mostly M's and A's. I had a PZ1P that I gave to my niece along with a flash and two lenses and am trying to get it back, also owned a Pentax 645 but that's long gone.

To be honest I do own a few Nikons but I also have Minolta, Rolleiflex, Ikoflex, Mamiya 645, Voigtlander, Holga, 4x5, 8x10...and way too many more. A big reason why I'm broke most of the time!

Anyway, I'm glad to be here and hope I will be welcome as well.
