Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada

Hello all. I have always been a faithful Pentax user starting back in the day with my ME-Super. Life got busy and I had no time for taking pictures. So now with age, things have slowed down and I have decided to continue my passion of photography and moved into the digital world with a few used camera's before moving up to a new one. I have a K10D, K-X and a K20D. I am finding that my old K-mount lens work nicely with a few adjustments...of course.
I just picked up an old Pentax A 35-105mm lens in decent condition but I am looking for a user manual if anyone has one out there that I can get a copy from.

Thanks Mike

Hello from an Argentinian!
I don't know how old are you Mike, but I'm 31 and I still started in the pentax world with my dad's Mz5n and K1000. Both film cameras. And like you when I decided to try the digital Pentax's I bought a used K100D and that camera changed all I ever thought about photography.

Right now I'm kind of tired of carrying a big camera around for taking photos, but I just stick to small size devices and one or maybe two lenses and I'm good to go.

Canada is definitely on my list of places I want to visit but I'm from the north of Argentina in the border with Brazil, so cold weather is a big barrier for my travels hahaha. I'll have to go on summertime!

I don't have the user manual you requested and I don't know any specific place where to find it, but I'm sure you'll find it. I always just google the full name or model with 'user manual' at the end and is always popping up. So good look with that!

And have a good time around the forum! See ya! 😊

Welcome to the forums and I second what was already said about your living in a beautiful and photogenic province. Have been a happy visitor a couple times but not since I picked up photography.

Welcome

can't help with the owner's manual on the lens but perhaps these might help some time

your camera bodies are on line 4 and 5
