Aloha evrybody!

I'm new to this site - I think.. I joined a Pentax related forum site about 8 years ago. Anyway, I am a long time (40+ years) shooter of 35mm and medium format with all brands. My top four are Nikon, Pentax, Minolta and Canon. When I was about 7 or 8, my father taught me how to shoot and edit 8mm and 16mm motion picture film. That led to an interest in still photography and since my father's best friend was a professional photographer, I had a few resources and knowledge at my disposal so I took advantage of it! I learned most of what I know on a K-1000 like about 99.9% of anyone who ever picked up a film camera and took a class in school. Fast forward through a career in television, I went a little eBay crazy back in 2005-2008 and now I own several hundred (yes - HUNDRED) various 35mm film SLRs of all brands. Getting ready to start selling most of them (hey, I gotta keep my favorites..) back on eBay now that it looks like people are buying again. Glad to register here and I look forward to meeting fellow Pentax users and learn what I can! Mahalo! (I lived in Hawaii for 10 years.. it kind of gets in your blood. )

Welcome to the forums! Thanks for the intro

You're not the only one on here with lots and lots of cameras. And lenses. Yes, in the hundreds.

Not me, though. I'm sensible. Only a couple of dozen lenses, just enough to get by
