First Pentax bought from a PX in 1970. I thought I should go Pentax/M-42 since we had them in our office and the Russians also used an M-42 lens mount. We used each other's lenses. I never changed my preference for Pentax.

Cool! I started out in my youth under my Dad's tutelage using his old H1a, which I have sitting here on my desk right now - still in working order. I never shoot film anymore, though, so it sits here and I look at it and fiddle with it a lot. That's one of the benefits of working from home. Got back into SLR use back in 2012 when I bought a K30, and haven't looked back. My son is stealing the 30, and I have a K3 I use now.

What are you currently shooting? Any favorites from your time as a Pentaxian?
