Hello from Cape Canaveral

A great collection of knowledge. Thanks for making this forum accessable to all.
My History includes a Pentax ME in the mid 70's while in college. Did some photo work and developing for the yearbook. No photo work since then, just family photo's. In the mid 90's I purchased my first digital camera - (Panasonic - 640 K). Now I have stepped up to a DSLR. Pentax KX. I am so happy to use the same lenses that I used in college, my son used in college, and hopefully I will be able to use for years.
I found your forum while searching for a fix to my first blunder. I bought a Sears lens from Ebay that said Pentax, well it had that extra pin that locks the lens between on and off. I found the fix for this and did not have to get the hack saw out. I also have a problem with a Pentax 50mm 1.7 that has a sticky aperture ring. I found a fix that I will try under your article menu.

It is great to have this new camera as well as the support group that I have found here. Hopefully one day I will be able to help someone in return.

Welcome fellow Floridian!!!

One day, it's going to get so overcast here that we're going to have to crank her above 100 ISO.
