Some words about me and old SLRs

Hi, I´m from CzechRepublic. I started with photo as a student, with old Czech camera“Flexaret”. It´s something as a “Czech Rolleiflex” So,in 1981 I bought my first SLR – Praktica PLC 3, it was made in GDR (East Germany). There was n´t possibility to buy some other SLR as Praktica in Czechoslovakia in these years (except Soviet Zenit –nothing for serious work). Just in 2000 I bought my first Pentax – It was MZ 10, quite simple, but modern and reliable SLR camera.
But in the digitalera, I changed my equipment to Canon – Pentax was coming with DSLRs to the market a bit tentatively.
However, I like old manual Pentax SLRs, as LX and MX and some others. So I was founding more informations about them and I find Pentax Forums. Now, I own LX and MX and some M lenses. Pentax Forums helps me well, thanks!
I´m sorry, my English is n´t very good.

Welcome! I look forward to seeing more posts and photographs. There are lots of film photographers here, including me, and I love my film Pentax cameras. I agree that your English is well understood, no problems.

Welcome to the forum, the LX IMHO is still one of Pentax finest moments.

Welcome to the forums.

FYI, Pentax DSLRs play pretty nicely with old manual lenses, as do many (if not all) mirrorless digital cameras such as the Fuji X and Sony NEX cameras.

Welcome to the forum. I can understand you perfectly - no problem there. Although I only shoot Pentax DSLR now, my MX and LX were perfect for me in the film days. And Pentax continues to deliver for me. Enjoy the forum.
