Newbie here :)

Hey! New to the forum! It’s been about 20 years since I have practiced with a k1000, but on a whim I bought a used one off a local lady.
I am excited to get back into it and look forward to speaking with everyone and re- learning!
I never could get into digital, so “old school” it is!
First question: anyone have a good referral for cleaning?
Thanks!

welcome to the forums

lots of friendly members and knowledge can be found here

perhaps you might call the craftsman in Topeka Kansas who helped me out when my 150-450mm zoom fell apart
