Good day

... from Melbourne, Australia.

I have been using Pentax since the introduction of the P67II in 1998. I still use this camera regularly. I shoot Velvia slide film, which - fortunately - still can be developed at reasonable expense and within a one day turnaround time where I live. My slides are projected with a Goetschmann G67 projector on a large DaLite screen. A 6x7 slide show remains an impressive experience in this digital age. I have a number of excellent Pentax 67 lenses: 45mm F4, 75mm F2.8 AL, 90mm F2.8, 165mm F2.8, and 300mm F4.0 ED [IF].

I use the P67II for landscape photography and a small Ricoh GR for everything else. In my opinion, the GR is very underrated in general (probably not in this forum). A fine little camera that can be customised nicely and delivers sufficient picture quality for most purposes.

Regards, Jim

Thanks. Yes, I am happy with these lenses. Mostly use the 45, 75 and 300mm lenses.

Welcome, would be interesting to see a few images on the forum, if you scan them in some way.

Hello Jim, welcome to the forum. I love slide film, esp. Fuji Velvia. I think it was one year (1993) that I shot slide film only. I still have beautiful memories of our trip to Sri Lanka and Maldives.
