I have been too busy to take photos lately, so today I cleaned up my camera safe and noticed a interesting progression in my photography.

Back Row: Pentax 6X7/55mm f/4-Pentax 645n/45mm f/2.8



Front Row: Pentax K1000 SE/50mm M f/1.7-Pentax LX/A* 200mm f/2.8-Pentax PZ-1P/85mm f/1.4-Pentax MZ-5n/28-105mm f/4-5.6-Pentax MZ-S with Battery Grip/FA* 80-200mm f/2.8-Pentax *istDS/FA* 20-70mm f.2.8-Pentax K10D/FA* 300mm f/4.5

Sadly I don't use the film cameras as much as I use to, especially the medium format cameras that produce such amazing images.

Impressive!

And I'll bet that only shows a small portion of your lenses.

Pentax 6 X 7 with Rosewood handle. For many years the camera of my dreams. I rented one for a weekend, many years ago , with the 90 mm lens -leaf shutter- and the pix clarity, depth, etc., were beyond anything I've taken before or since.

I'm comparing to my Mamiya 2- 1/4 and my wedding pix which were taken by a photographer with a Hasselblad 2- 1/4.

The Pentax 6 X 7, IMO when it came to quality pictures was unsurpassed.

As I am very happy withmy two cameras, I am more impressed with the lens selection.

Very nice.

That brown leather (?) covered K1000. Wasn't that a special commermorative camera? 25 years of the Pentax K1000 production or something?

Hmmm, how many cords of wood did I have to chop per week to be adopted?

It was the first year of productionof the SE verson of the K1000 camera. The SE came with a split image finder plus a microprisim.

I forgot to put in the Spotmtic that I first started out with. I am not sure what it means that I still have them all, but I am sure my wife will have an answer for that question.
