Hi all, a short introduction

My name is Willem, married with Carla and we have 2 daughters and one son.
I started photography some 45 years ago with a Zenith-e.
Shortly after it failed I switched to Nikon (film) SLR's.
Finally stepped up to digital Nikon's (D70s and D200) with several lenses.
2 years ago I sold all my Nikon camera's and switched to a Samsung mirrorless digital camera (Samsung NC300m) with a few lenses because of the weight of the SLR's.
As I accidentally came across a nice Pentax Super A with some prime lenses I couldn't resist
Now I am using it on a regular base during weekend trips and I am happy with the handling of the camera and the results.
My latest purchase was a near mint Pantax ME Super which I still need to test.

Greetings from Poland!
It's hard to resist a nice Pentax camera in good shape! Good luck with your ME Super.

Hi Willem, welcome from the UK! Many of us here have treasured film Pentaxes (I occasionally use an original AP, a Spotmatic SL and a K2), so you’ll find lots to discuss. Enjoy your time here!
