My Newest Camera

My Uncle (yes, really, this isn't one of those ebay scams!) has just passed to me his Pentax and lenses. Until he mentioned it a month ago I didn't even know he was a Pentax user.

The body is an MX, and the extraordinary lens in the picture is a Jupiter-II 135mm F4




The other lens were much more conventional, an M 50mm F1.7, M 135mm F3.5 and M 75-150 F4. Not sure if I have the courage to try putting the Jupiter on the K10D, but I found a website by someone else who did!

The 135/3.5 and 75-150 were 2 of the better M lenses. Enjoy!

(You may find the light seals on the rear door are going soft unless the camera has been serviced. If they need replacing drop me a line and I can send some strips. It is about a 5 min job)

Kim,

Thanks, I'm pushing a film through it just to see what it can do. Damn! I have to think when I use this camera!

Winding film on, I had forgotten about that technique with all this digital stuff!

Yup, put a reel of film through my K1000 earlier this week for the first time in about 3 years and found myself thinking "Why isn't it taking a picture" EVERY time. Ah, yes, that lever on the top back right...................
