A neighbour recently gave me a S1a film body in drool-worthy condition with some lenses. The body has had a CLA with all new seals etc and before joining this forum I found it a really useful place to read up on the body and lenses, so thank you for that.

Also as a result of reviews in the lens review section I've just splashed out on a Super Takumar 85mm f/1.9 in fantastic condition (got a pretty good deal on it too! :-) )

I tried the lens out yesterday and the first roll of HP5+ is now drying in my bathroom. It looks good!

Not sure how much I can contribute when everyone seems to know so much about these cameras already, but I might be able to chip in now and then.

Thank you!

Hello, Tim, and welcome aboard from another Brit. Glad you could join us.

Congratulations on the S1a and lenses, and your ST85/1.9 - nice setup!

Contributing doesn't have to be about adding new information; just getting involved is appreciated.

Looking forward to your posts here

Hi from Australia Tim. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Unlike the newer digital camera bodies, the film bodies were not weather sealed, so any " drool " will cause damage !! Good to have you aboard.
