First Time Poster, Long Time Reader


My first Pentax was a K1000 my girlfriend got me at a yard-sale 6 years ago. Now I have a K1000, a Spotmatic Sp II, an ME Super, and a K3. I love all of them. I use Canons often for work and have some great Canon film cams, but nothing like my fondness for vintage Pentax. My favorite lens so far is the M 85 f/2, but also have a lot of fun with the SMC 100 f/4 macro. I have loved the lens reviews for a long time and am excited to join the community.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome brother! I too cut my teeth on the K1000. A friend loaned me one a few years back to teach me how to shoot manual. There is a ton of free knowledge here, I'm sure you'll dig this community.

PS Nice shots!

Welcome aboard, Pentax kit has a way of doing that... kinda getting in under the skin.
