Hello fellow Pentaxians , greetings from Belgium

Twenty years ago my first Pentax was a dead cheap second hand ME-F with a 50 mm f/1,4 attached to it that i bought at an auction of confiscated goods . It was sitting in a sportsbag together with a carton off smokes ,a bottle of 12 year old scotch a car stereo ,a sledgehammer and 3 crowbars lol . I got the entire bag for about 30 $. After one roll of kodak 200 i was sold on Pentax forever and it was a faithfull workhorse for more than 10 years until the shutter failed , that 50mm is still going strong though and still gets use on my K-10D ,K-30 and sometimes even on my MZ-50 or my "new" ME-F ( i missed it so much i had to have another working one). I love old gear and i actually only bought that K-10D a couple of months ago (only 150 with kit and 2 batteries) ,that CCD sensor feels like film,love it
I love the fact you can get so many lenses to fit on the modern Pentax DSLR's and i don't even own a M42 screw adapter yet
My main camera now is the K-30 ,and i love it as much as i do the ME-F

I think that 12 year old in your post was what kerrowdown was referring to, not your daughter.

Welcome and enjoy PF! As for the bad timing, our thoughts are with you these difficult moments. Many things need to change on this planet before it is too late... If we humans can't understand that there are no reasons not to be united and if solidarity doesn't become a reality, we will face horrible situations... It's a pitty and I'm one of the Greeks that live in dreadful conditions due to many factors in our country... Let's hope common sense and peace will prevail. Greetings and welcome once more!

I can only second redpit's comments. I know your whole country is hurting right now, but please know the world is with you.

Welcome to the forum - it is truly an international group.
