Hello Pentax friends from Geneva

Greetings to all!


In my mid 30's and after a break of more than 10yr I am back with passion to my childhood hobby of photography, which started with a present from my parents in the early 90's. I had my own dark rook at that time.

Now, I am back with an LX and a spotmaticF black with a few Takumars I am patiently trying to repair/restore/clean and plenty M's (50, 35, 85mm). I dont intent to shoot B&W but rather color negatives. I have purchased a Plustek 8200i and working slowly on improving my home development skills. I dont plan to navigate far from Pentax, but I am interested in buying a cheap Leica R to use some other glass.



I will leverage this community for expertise sharing and possibly purchase items.

The present was a K1000, btw! That was brought me on-board and still keeps me fascinated with Pentax. This K1000 is still here, but in serious need of a CLA (only L actually)!

Welcome to the Forums. You will find quite a few people here who share your passion for older film cameras.

Welcome to the forum, IMHO the LX was the Pentax finest hour.
