I have been looking at this forum for some time now. A couple of years actually. I purchased my first Pentax in 1967 if I remember correctly. I was a Spotmatic for $250, quite a bit of money back then and still is. I believe it had a f1.8 lens. It was a very nice camera. I never sold it.
Anyway, I am impressed with this forum and it is a testament to both the moderators and its members. To you I say congratulations and well done. I have gleaned much from you all and expect to do more in the future. Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forums - great to have you with us!

We have plenty of members that started off with Spotmatics and the like, but I doubt we have many that still own the first Pentax they bought!

Looking forward to your involvement

Welcome aboard. I have a Spotmatic II with the 55mm f1.8 lens. The lens has stood the test of time and still delivers on my DSLR's.

Well I see I seem to be laying down on the job. Ninety degrees to the right to be exact. Not sure how to fix that.

You might just need to rotate your source image, and re- upload it. Good luck. You might start a trend with sideways avatars !!

Hahaha. I don't know about starting a new trend, god I hope not. I'll rotate the original and see if that helps. Thanks.
