New member but Iíve been using this forum as a reference for some time. I began shooting with my sisterís neglected K1000 in the Ď90s and ended up a journalist marking my third decade in the field. My old Pentax and Sears K-mount gear sat unused for years after I was assigned Nikons at work. Once we went digital, I was done with chemistry for good Ö until recently. The film bug is back, Iím adding to my Pentax and Takumar collection and Iím inspired to be getting back to shooting for the love of it. I love Asahi gear for its historic, artistic and innovative excellence and itís just so dang sexy. This forum is invaluable, thanks to you contributors. Peace and love.

as you were a long time lurker like myself before pressing register, officially, welcome to the forum community! Thanks for sharing that interesting bit of backstory and im glad to hear that your high quality gear is back from the cubbard! Aside from them being sexy, they were also built like a tank! Once your able to start voting and submitting photos into the photo competitions, dont sleep on them! Quite fun to see how peoples different styles produce stunning images.
