Autotech659 says hello!

Hello everyone, my name is David, (please don't call me Dave), I bought my first SLR, a Pentax MG, back in the early 80s. Because I wanted to get into photography as more than a hobby, or taking vacation pictures, I bought a few lenses and accessories over time. Besides the 50 mm lens that came with the camera, I have a wide angle lens with macro zoom, a 135 mm telephoto lens, and for some reason, I bought two 80-200 mm zoom lenses. Don't ask me why because I couldn't give you an answer. I also purchased a few lens filters; some that were light filters and some that added affects, a flash that never worked properly, (I think it had something to do with the contacts on the flash not lining up properly with the contacts on the shoe), and an auto film advance(?) attachment. I also wanted a camera that had manual settings but still had an automatic setting, so I bought a Ricoh KR10 Super because I could use the same lenses that I bought for my Pentax. I never was able to do anything more than take pictures when we were on vacation or much else, probably because I don't have a lot of creativity in me, so they didn't get used nearly as much as I had hoped. I now have a Pentax K20D that I really like, and the fact that I can use my SLR lenses with it is a bonus. Sorry for the long introduction, but I could have gone on and wrote a novel like I sometimes do, but I refrained from doing so.
