New to the forum. I started with Pentax film cameras in 1966 when I was in the US Army. Took a correspondence course in photography around 1970 or so and started working as a professional in 1973. I added medium format and 4x5 view as I went along, but I always had the Pentax 35 and an assortment of lenses. I got away from photography by the 1980s and just recently got a K3II and used some of the old lenses for a while, but now I have an18-135 for it and I have to learn how to use it. This seemed like just the place for that.
