Properly Chastised

Hi,
I guess I qualify as a new old member.

Background:

Been shooting Pentax equipment semi-professionally (the odd magazine / newspaper publishes my work infrequently) since I first bought a Spotmatic in 1967 to take pictures of our soon-to-be-born daughter. At that time Pentax ads (they did advertise in those days) used the catch phrase "just hold a Pentax." I did, and the ergonomics hooked me but good.

Over the ensuing decades, the backwards compatibility enticed me to migrate to a K-mount, an auto-exposure, an autofocusing and finally a DSLR. Every one of them performed above expectations and each is still capable of producing far better pictures than I get from them.

Equipment:

Bodies:
Spotmatic
KX
MX
SuperProgram
Z-1
*istD

Pentax Lenses:
SMCP-F FEZ17-28: f/3.5-4.5
SMC FA 20-35: f/4
SMC FA 28-105: f/4.5-5.6 PZ
SMCP-F Z 80-200: f/4.7-5.6
SMC FA 80-320: f/4.5-5.6
SMC FA 100-300: f/4.5-5.6 PZ
SMCP-F 100mm: f2.8 Macro
SMC 55mm: f2 K mount
50mm - f/1.4 M42

Non-Pentax Lenses:
28mm
35mm
135mm
200mm
17-28mm
35-210mm

Lots of other stuff

What I shoot:

Food
Family
Flowers
Dogs (Bearded Collies)
Travel
Architecture
