1977 when I first laid hands on a Pentax. It was a K1000 that belonged to my girlfriend. I loved it. Then we split up - gee I did miss that camera!

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

I'm not one of them, being born around a decade after some of you started shooting!

Also, welcome Mark!
