Hello from Wiltshire, United Kingdom

Good evening all,

A recent re-convert to photography, having been bought a K-50 a couple of Christmases ago, and after finding out about the compatibility of legacy lenses, finding myself on a slippery slope via eBay.... Now the proud owner of an additional ME Super, K1000, and MX-50 (for a princely £5) a fistful of lenses... and no less than FOUR Pentax 110 Autos (because they're small... and only count together as one camera... right?! Please don't tell my partner. She's never seen more than two together at the same time!!!! )

Oh, and as word spread, I've also found myself the recipient of a number of gifts/inheritances - to whit; an Olympus 35 Trip, an Olympus 35 RD, a Canon FT QL and a Bronica ETRSi... I have a steep learning curve, but loving the old and new tech together. I'm a blend of luddite and geek I guess.

Midlife crisis, moi?!

At least its cheaper than blowing my cash on a classic bike, right?

Welcome to the forum, if itís any consolation many others are on the same slippery slope, hopefully in front of you giving you a softer landing.

Welcome from Chicago!

The hand-me-downs of old gear is always interesting. You never know what Grandpa had in that bag or box.

Good evening all
Hello and welcome. I used to live near Westbury, but I saw the light and moved to sunny Devon...
