Hello from Michigan

Hi, pretty much a noob, been shooting seriously for a year. Develop and scan my own film now. Shoot both digital and film. I use a Pentax K1000 mainly with B & W. I only use a 50mm 1.7 at this time. Thanks, looks like an informative forum.

When I went digital the FA 50 1.7 was my first prime. It's a nice lens. It will keep you busy for a while for sure.

I taught photography for 14 years with k1000s, a 12 bay darkroom, and 50mm lenses. So it's a familiar set up. But my guess is, at some time, Lens Buying Addiction will creep into your life. Currently the site has no counsellors for that, only enablers.

I will probably pick up a zoom at some point but will just keep using my legs and feet for now.

Shoot both digital and film.

Hi TheBeav. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Many members do both formats here as well, so any help you may need with either is only a question away.
Good to have you here.
