Hi Everybody!

I am a camera user. I have many SLR cameras, but for all intensive purposes I'll stuck to my Pentax cameras. I own 2 Pentax MX, a Pentax Me Super SE that my uncle gave me with a few lenses (Vivitar Series 1 70-210, Pentax M 50mm f/1.4 and Vivitar 283 flash.) One of my MX has to be shot upside down to fire which is weird and came with an M42 adapter installed in the K-mount, so that's where it stays. in addition I have a Pentax MV-1 and a Pentax MG. The MG unfortunately had its shutter release literally eject out of the body as the plastic cracked using a cable release that I guess was too strong so it is a self timer only camera now and no Bulb from now on either. I own a Pentax screw mount Vivitar 90mm Macro, Soligor 90-300mm zoom, 50mm f/1.4 Takumar, Braun 40mm, 135mm f/3.5 Takumar, 28mm f/3.5 Takumar, H1a, Honeywell Spotmatic, Asahi Spotmatic, Soligor 200mm f/2.8.55mm f/1.8 Takumar. I love cameras and photography.

Another NZ welcome!

Love those Takumars - I'm a fan myself and they work great on the K-1!
