Default New member, long time Pentax man

Hello all. I'm a new member as of this evening and I shoot exclusively with Pentax gear. I bought my first Pentax 35mm SLR, a Spotmatic, in 1966, while on R&R in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War.

Yep, I'm an old timer! My Spotmatic served me well for many years, then I up-graded to a ME Super. I now shoot with a K-50, a K-30 and occasionally a Kx.

It seems as if there aren't many members who shoot with a Pentax camera, but I'm looking forward to meeting those who do.

Cheers,
Dewman

Thank you for the welcome. I'm looking forward to contributing to the site. I think it's interesting that you shoot with three different systems. I don't have any experience with any brand other than Pentax..... unless you want to go back almost 50 years ago. Then, I could include a 4x5 Speed Graphic and a 16x20 Dierdorff during my Navy days.
