Hello from Alaska

Hi. Just joined the forum, but I've been a Pentax user since the 1970's. My first SLR was a Pentax MX that was a high-school graduation present from my parents. I've stuck with Pentax cameras ever since. Recently bought a K-3 II as my main camera. I also caught the collecting bug a few years ago, and now have many Pentax film cameras, from an Asahiflex to a Super Program. Some of my favorites are a Pentax AP, chrome ES, Spotmatic F, LX, and MX (not my original one, sadly- it died in the 80's).

Even before joining, I found the forums to be an excellent resource for information on the old cameras and lenses.
