Hello all. I joined the forum last week but am just now posting. I'm not a serious photographer but do enjoy capturing outdoor scenes including nature, street scenes, and trains. In my teens (early-mid 80's) I wanted a Pentax K1000 but my dad made me use his Olympus 35-SII instead. I still have that Olympus in mint condition but recently decided I was old enough (48) to buy my long sought after K1000. I'm looking forward to using the K1000 and rediscovering my dad's Olympus rangefinder.

Hi Mike. Welcome to the Pentax forums and Pentax equipment. Better late than never regarding the K1000 !!! Many members still " film " it here, so any help or advice you may need is only a question from you away. Good to have you here.
