Introduction of a Pentaxian

Hello Pentaxians,

Although I am an avid Pentax user, I was never registered on this site. Did use it though. Now it is time to introduce myself after registration.

I started long time ago in the eighties with a Pentax K1000 (I still have in working order).I have a collection of K-mount glass to fit analogue and digital bodies.Nowadays I shoot with a K-1 primarily, but also with M43 for all city street photography. But macro, nature, reproduction, landscape and architecture is still done with K-mount.
I still use film for specific series in Amsterdam, and therefore my old Ricoh XR-X and Pentax Z-1/Program A/K1000 are still in use. I even shoot medium format 6*6 and 645(120 film only).

Kind regards,

Welcome to the forum.

Will there be a tutorial on how to pronounce your nickname?

No I will not deliver a tutorial.
The translation into Sidetrack is not that poetic, so you may just call me Ron.
