I joined the forum recently, having browsed as a non-member for a short while; so much useful info on here...

My first Pentax was an ME Super, in 1981, which I still have, and which is currently having a complete overhaul in preparation for shooting a few rolls of film, for the first time since 2006.

I recently bought a K-1, which seems superb, but along the way since the ME Super I've had an SF-7, a Z-50P, a K-100D (briefly), and a K-10D which I've recently sold.


Wiltshire, UK.

Hi from Australia Ian. Welcome to the Pentax forums. You have certainly dipped your toe in the deep end with the lovely K-1 !!! Good to have you aboard.

Thanks for your replies.

I should have mentioned perhaps that I've sold the auto focus lenses I used with the Z50P and K10D, and instead with the K-1 I'm using Pentax A 1:4 70-210, and A 1:3.5 35-105 zooms. I also have an M 50mm 1:7, and an A 28mm from my ME Super days (I use an iPhone too, currently a 7+).

Hello, Ian, and a belated welcome aboard from another Brit... glad you could join us

Congratulations on the K-1, and nice to hear you're giving the ME Super a new lease of life.

Looking forward to your involvement here!
