Hello from Calgary

I've lurked here off and on for a while, just set up an account recently.

Chose my username from thinking back to when I first started shooting with my ME and realized it was about 40 years ago. The ME was an upgrade from my Instamatic for sure.

Just picked up my second Pentax DSLR body today when I found an ad for an almost unused K200D in its original box, strap and cables still in original wrapping for 100 CDN. Fired it up to find it has less than 400 shutter clicks on the counter.

Looking forward to increasing that count greatly over the summer.

The K200D is still a great Camera. One of Pentax's best digitals in my opinion.

Looks like you bought it at just the right time! You can't argue with the price either, especially at that shutter count.

And the ME is a great camera too. I took an ME and a K-5 on my most recent trip, and even with a digital camera and a 16MP cellphone cam (which hardly ever got used) available, and only shooting it in daylight, the ME still got five rolls of film through it in a week (at least two of which were 36-shot). Inflexible, true (except within a couple of stops), but the smallness and the ease of just setting your aperture and taking the shot make it a go-to for happy-snapping when walking about.
