Greetings from USA (Delaware)

Hello, new to this site, but not to Pentax. I received a Pentax K1000 for my high school graduation in 1978, and currently that camera is being used by my daughter who is in art school. I recently purchased a second K1000 on e-bay for myself (I was very dissatisfied with an Olympus OM-10), and have gotten nothing but good, clear, in focus pictures since getting it. I also just inherited a Pentax Super Program, and am looking forward to possibly taking B&W film again with one of the cameras. Just getting back into taking pictures again, and having fun doing it.

Welcome aboard, the k1000 is a real work horse. I may be prejudiced here but you can't go wrong with Pentax.

The good part is all those lenses for the K1000 work just fine on the digitals, too.

What part of DE?

Welcome to the forum. I just dusted off my K1000 and put a roll of film in it, and it feels really good to push that shutter button! You'll enjoy it here, a lot of friendly people and a good combination of film & digital!
