Ahoy hoy from Toronto

Greetings there, I recently got into the world of Pentax not by getting a camera, but two! I bought around a month ago a K200d and also got as a gift from my uncle his old Super Me. The latter sadly doesn't really work though.

I am 27 and live in Toronto, in the strange beautiful land of Canada and I am pretty new to the whole photography world and trying to learn and whatnot.

My newb gear is the kit lens, the DA 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED and the M 50mm F2 (yes, not one but two kit lenses!).

Just wanted to say that this site was a huge help deciding for what is now my first SLR and that's really appreciated.

Cheers

That looks interesting. I will definitely consider it, although he mentions he charges 68 for the repair of Super MEs. I was thinking maybe I could get one in working order for probably less than that, although maybe it'd be a better idea to just send this one and be done with it.

That looks really interesting, I am pretty new though, is it still okay for beginners to hang around that kind of trip? I really am still learning. I got my camera a month ago but I was so busy I actually didn't start using it until last week.

doesn't really matter, there's a good mix of gear talk, taking pictures and chilling out.
