Hello

Bought a Pentax K1000, with my first paycheck in 1981.
Have been a pentax fan ever since.

Hi Colin. Welcome to the Forums, My first pay check was not until 1968 and I couldn't afford a Pentax even then! We have lots of Aussies here (as you probably figured out if you have been following the Forums for a while). Where in Australia are you?

Hey Colin. Are you still shooting the K1000? I started with a KM, which was essentially a K1000 with a self-timer and stop-down button. Are you digitised now? 😀

I still go back further...

Good news is... only by one more year though.

I'd be happy just to remember 22, in fact even remember breakfast would be a good start.
