New member from Chicago says "hi"

Happy New Year!

I've had my Spotmatic IIa since 1973, and am getting back into photography after about a 10 year break. Recently did some research on the newer camera technologies and I've decided that I'll be staying with this camera and its M42 buddies for quite a while.

Looking forward to sharing info and stories with other Pentax owners.

A warm welcome, Robert. You're not alone in choosing to stick with film for a while. Check out the film SLR forum and you'll feel right at home. There's an interesting discussion going on at the moment about b&w film that you might enjoy. Wriggle in, get comfortable and join the party.
