Hello from Scotland


I'm Peter and I've just joined the forum. Why? Well, the new K-1 I just obtained for a very good price (though not quite good enough to placate my wife!) might have something to do with it. I'm looking forward to shooting with my old M-lenses again after having "rested" them for a few years.
I've been a Pentax user since 1983 when I got a used MX in part-exchange for my old Zenit-E (I often wish I'd kept the Zenit, it was an important camera for me, plus they're very hip now!). Since then I built up a stable of various lenses and a second MX body. Seven or eight years ago I got a GR digital (OK, not a Pentax, but sorta/kinda honorary Pentax?) and have neglected my SLRs since. The K-1 brings me back.
So much for cameras, but it's the photos that count, right? I have to admit I'm a pretty mediocre photographer. But now I can enjoy making ever higher resolution mediocrity than before!

Welcome to the forums, Peter - good to have you with us!

Congratulations on your K-1... a very fine camera indeed. If you still have your GR digital, you'll find there are plenty of fans here too.

As for the Zenit-E, I have more of those lying around than I care to count... usually as a result of buying them for the lenses that were attached. Yes, they're quite hip - they certainly have a vintage appeal to them

Looking forward to your involvement here

Welcome here mate. High resolution means you have room to improve.
Enjoy the process and the forum.

Welcome to the forum, I genuinely cannot think of a better reason to justify a K1 purchase.
