Hi all, Hello from the UK, a little place called Eckington halfway between Shefffield and Chesterfield. I've been using Pentax since I got my S1a in the 60's when most SLR cameras used the M42 thread for mounting lenses, then on through the Spotmatics and ME Super to the digital age, currently using the K-1 , though I also use the M4/3 system with Olympus and Panasonic as it's a lot lighter to carry on these old bones.

One of my favourite cameras is the much maligned Pentax Q it really is a remarkable camera I have 2 of them they're so useful for attatching to microscopes and telescopes, a use which seems to be overlooked.

Welcome, Chris - good to have you with us

I'm a big fan of the Q-series cameras too. In fact, they have quite a following in these forums, so you're in good company

Looking forward to your involvement here...

Welcome to the Forums, Chris. I am a FanatiQ too. I have three of them - Q, Q10 and Q7. I use them when I need to travel light around the bush.
