Momma, I'm home!

After a decade of trying to find an almost perfectly clean, cheap and working Pentax ME Super 35mm film camera, I finally got one.

This was the camera that showed and taught me the world of photography, just like my Momma did, for almost everything in my life.

I can't wait to shoot with it again and share the photos to family and friends and here in this forum.

Welcome to the forum, usually you don't normally find these three all together.

Thanks ChristianRock and pjv

@Kerrowdown, yes it is almost unbelievable to see! Like it's brand new from 1979 LOL! (Here's another photo to see the inside as well) The ex-owner said that this camera has been very well taken care of and have always been in the field case with the lens cover on.

This is my favorite SLR (over the OM-1, and my first love K-1000).

The size and sturdiness/finnesse... I have not found a better match.

@edom31 yup it's compact, light (1.0+ pounds/460+ grams), very sturdy and not flimsy plastic as my Holga 120 haha and it fits like a glove in my hand - controls and everything.

@Ex Finn. thanks

I can attest to this - mine has fallen from the handle of a stroller (4 feet up) twice in one week (Yes, I'm an idiot for leaving it there). Both times it hit the pavement in the street. No scratches or anything out of place (although my K 55/1.8 did suffer a small dent).
