Hello all. I got into the Pentax K lens system in 1982 with the Ricoh XR-S Solar powered film SLR. When that and the similar XR-7 died, I decided to get a Pentax PZ-1. I finally bought my first digital SLR in 2006, a Pentax *ist-DL. I've kept my PK lenses which back to 1980s and still use many of them with the 1.7X Pentax K mount. I'm saving up for a K7 or maybe eventually 645 Digital!

I enjoy photography and I learn something new every day. A few days ago I learned how to fix a mode switch problem with the *iST-DL. I'll post a link to my fix on the appropriate forum. Take care!
