My first slr was a Yashica FX3, the second was a Minolta X700. Then I bought a Ricoh KR5 super 2, then I added a Ricoh XR 10. Now I have two Pentaxes *ISTD L,and a K20D. The only ones I have are the Ricoh KR super 2,and the two DSLR Pentaxes. The Yashica was stolen,and I sold the Minolta. My oldest son has the Ricoh XR10.

Only counting the SLRs:

1. K1000 (primary body from '96 to '08)
2. K10d
3. KX (film) to replace the K1000
4. MZ-5n
5. ME
6. 645
7. Program Plus

The Program Plus is the only body that I haven't put at least a couple of rolls through and the only one that I bought just for the included accessories. The vinyl on the grip is peeling badly and I intend to replace it if the camera does alright with a test roll.

Ha! Lucky 13 in each list. I am doomed, eh?

These are just the SLRs I do or have owned, not counting loaners nor job-supplied cams. Also not counting LF's, RF's, VF's, TLR's, P&S's (film and digital), boxes, folders, pinholes, spycams, webcams, and other photo-receptive devices. Hay, if you scan yer butt, that's a camera, right? Right!

Cameras that I've owned and used over the years. I'm sure there are a few more old rangefinders, compact PnS cameras and junk cameras that I have owned at one time or another.
I've gone fully digital and only use the K-5 and LX-3 now while the Pentax 67 is on long term loan to a friend.

XK Motor
XD-7 (2)
X-700 (3)
700 Si

FM 2
FE 2
Coolpix 5700
Coolpix 5200
Coolpix 4600
D70 (2)


Autoreflex TC



Program Plus
K100D Super

Interesting thread...

First DSLR purchased November 2009

1. Inherited a 90's film Minolta from my dad, but never used it. It's in the attic collecting dust somewhere. Not even sure of the model.

2. Canon T1i, purchased in late Nov 2009 and returned 2 weeks later after discovering the K-x.

3. Pentax K-x, loved and shot for one year. Sold about 2 months ago.

4. Pentax K-7, upgraded from K-x and still continue to use.

5. Pentax K-5, used for 3 weeks but returned due to sensor stains. Ironic enough, all my PPG stuff is from the K-5.

6. Nikon D7000, used for 3 weeks but returned due to back focus issues.

7. White Pentax K-R, gift for my wife but I like to "borrow" now and then

I did enjoy the Nikon, but loved the K-5 more. Still considering going full frame, but am content with the current Pentax household with the K-7 and K-R.
