My name is Harvey and and I live on the desert near Palm Springs, CA. I've just recently purchased a Pentax K200 and also an old, nearly mint Pentax K1000. The K200 had a very nice write-up in one of the Apple/Mac magazines and was rated "awesome". I like the fact that the camera requires only four "AA" batteries. Also, it seems to take pretty good photos. Thought I might try my hand at shooting some film with the K1000 which I haven't used yet. I'm also having lots of fun playing around with old, manual focus lenses on the K200, e.g., Takumar 1:2.8/28mm and an old Pentax -M 1.7/50mm.

I've read several of the threads presented on this forum and have learned much from them. I'm fairly new to photography and still have lots more to learn.

Regards to all!

Welcome. The M50/1.7 is a great little lense. Have fun with your new toys and show us some of your photos.
