  1. Many of the classics passed my desk during 25 years as a camera technician. K1000, FTbn, SRT101. Wonderful little machines, each with a personality of it’s own. Thanks for the memory.

  2. My first SLR was a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic – bought at the PX at Lakenheath AFB, England in 1967 at a great military price discount!… while stationed at the Navy Polaris Submarine Base in Holy Loch, Scotland. It was the camera I traveled with throughout the U.K. and western Europe when on leave and long weekends…..including all my trips to Paris, the French countryside…and 3 years each June at the 24 Hours of LeMans race. Sweet, fond memories of my Pentax. Still have it wrapped up in my closet…How could I ever leave it in someone else’s hands…and be so unfaithful to it🙂 lol !
