I've really got in to SLR photography again over the last 6 months. I was given a Pentax ME a year or so ago and decided to get it working again around Christmas. I've been having a lot of fun with it and have since purchased a couple of scrap ME Supers and MXs in the hope of getting a couple of working bodies from them all. I enjoying taking them apart and tinkering with them so I guess most of my posts will be around that subject.
I got a couple of them in a big joblot which included a fully functioning MZ-M/ZX-M, which I've yet to take out, and K-mount Miranda MS-2 Super.
I've amassed a stack of Lomography-type camera's over the years so there's lots to play with. My ambition currently is to get an MX in working order.
This forum has been a valuable resource so far!

Welcome to the forum Gareth.
We have all followed the news from afar as to the latest terror incident in your city. Very sad news.

Kind regards,

Welcome! My wife and I visited Manchester for the first time a couple of weeks ago. A lot of beauty and deep history there. Also we decided we love British Rail. :-)
