Waz Up!

My dad bought me an ME Super with a 50mm F/1.4 lens when I was 14-years old, my dad had a Spotmatic. During the 27 years I shot film with my ME Super, an A3000 and then the PZ-10. But the ME Super remained my goto camera for easy of use and precise control. During those years, my ME Super was stollen, twice, most recently just last year. I stopped shooting film in 2008, when I bought a used K-110D, which was stollen with my ME Super last year. It's been a rough year since having both of my cameras stollen. But I'm finally taking delivery of a used Pentax K-5 IIs.

I am a Pentax cult member.

Welcome to the forum, that's a pretty bad run of luck with camera.

Hope you have that K-5II much longer to enjoy.
