greetings from Slovakia


I am a new member with a Pentax K-m. I started off with photography, as a hobby, with an old Voigtländer VSL 3-E which started having shutter problems last year. As a result i was torn between getting it fixed and buying a new DSLR. Browsing through many websites (especially this one), helped me pick a new Pentax last summer. Since then i have been actively browsing and learning from this forum, only now have i had the courage to join it

I am very happy about the versatility a Dslr offers, however i still love the colours and "atmosphere" film cameras have. Therefore i am busy deciding if i should get my old Voigtländer fixed or buy an old Pentax film SLR. Oooh, this is one expensive hobby!

It can be expensive. But.. there are more expensive hobbies out there. Do what makes you happy. Welcome to the forum Martin.

Welcome, Martin.

I have a bunch of M42 Spotmatics, and I'll be selling a body or two in a few weeks.

Not 100% sure--I hate to part with them--and Slovakia is pretty far away to ship!
