Greetings all. I'm new to the forum.

So I messed around with photography years ago , never really took it serious enough to make it a quality hobby for myself , can't remember how I came to like Pentax but I purchased a Super Program back in the 1980s and still own it. For some reason I always thought Pentax was somehow an "inferior" brand. 20 years ago I purchased a PZ1P w/ SMC Pentax-FA 28-200mm F3.8-5.6 AL [IF] from B&H , dabbled around with it for a bit but again lost interest due to lack of time. So I have some extra time these days and decided to bring my cameras back to life. Boy after only a few weeks I'm having a great time I'm so excited I'm just walking up to strangers offering to take their pictures , so far about a 10% success rate but after all it is New Jersey, the point is I'm having a ball,,, anyways The PZ1P is very minty as if purchased yesterday and the lens bug is starting to bite , recently purchased 3 lenses and the camera goes with me everywhere now. The camera is somewhat complicated to know so I'm constantly reading the operating manual. This camera is awesome I probably need to clean it though, wasted a lot of film , maybe 3 decent pics , lots of dust on the images. Oh and the flash bug is biting too , I picked up a nice used AF280T and a 330FTZ. Gotta get results though, wish me luck......

Nice to meet you.

Welcome to the forum, do you need any advice from the membership here, on how to spend money on more lenses, we're very good at that.
