Greetings To All Pentaxians

Hi, my love for cameras started when I was in the Armed Services getting trained on Leica cameras. Purchased a Pentax MX and never looked back. Have not shot in a number of years but, plan on using the forum to help gain more knowledge to allow me to get the best out of the Pentax universe that exist.

Welcome. You will like it here. My path has been similar. Started in with film about 40 years ago before getting my first digital SLR a year ago. The learning curve has been worth it and I think having previously learned about exposure, film speed and aperture on the manual film camera gives you an advantage.

Welcome to the forum! What military service had the money to train rookies on Leicas? The USAF sure didn't. I got WWI vintage 8 x 10 field cameras and 4 x 5 Speed Graphics. Anyway, looking forward to seeing some of your images.
