K1000 to K50

Interest in Pentax cameras started in the late 70's with the purchase of a K1000 SE (brown leatherette wrapped body) Was a huge choice of film SLRs back then - nearly bought a Cannon AE-1, but liked the simplicity of the K1000 and the potential to take pictures with a dead battery (those were the days...).

Had MX and ME Super along the way, as well as lame point and shoot film Pentaxes before going digital with an early Sony Mavica. Continued with various p & s stuff (Panasonic, Nikon,Olympus and Cannon Elphs) more for convenience than quality.

Recently acquired a K50 and am very impressed with the progress Pentax continues to make with their DSLRs. Love that all my old lens fit, and there are millions of used lenses available for sale. Came across site while looking for info on lens interchange, and have enjoyed snooping around to learn more about my new camera.
