New to the game

I'm currently in my senior year at highschool and joined an F/A photography class. I didn't really like the crappy Chinese camera they gave me, so I set out to find an older Japanese made camera. I currently have a Pentax ME Super that I bought for $30. I'd like to know more on the camera. The previous owners took great care of it. The inside looks pristine and it functions great. I'm not biased about what companies I buy from; I'm open to any of the Japanese companies like Olimpus, Minolta, Konica, ect. But im definitely much happier with my Pentax knowing its lasted this long.

The Pentax ME Super is highly regarded and manufactured between 1980-86 see Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page.

It also gets a lot of kudos in our forums at Pentax ME Super - Pentax Manual Focus Film SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications
