New member, former Pentax sales rep

Hello,


I was a Pentax sales rep in the 1970s when we introduced Pentax K series, and then later the M series. ME was always my favorite. I'm starting a collection of Pentax-M stuff, and will be on the lookout for lenses. I am a writer-photographer and I post reviews of photo editing software on my blog twice a week.
Will Daniel

Hey - glad you joined! IIRC I met you on Photo.net ten or twelve years ago. Is that correct? If so, you sent me a pewter or Armetale KX belt buckle, which I still have.

Welcome and looking forward to hearing unique perspectives from a former insider. The `70`s was the time of my own start to following Pentax. That was a golden era.

Yeah -- that was me. I thought about that belt buckle the other day. You have a collector's item only because it's the pewter model. Asahi made thousands in brass, but limited quantity in pewter.
