Pentax camera and bag with lenses

Pentax lenses and cameras may not be mainstream but I’m an addict! My first SLR was a Pentax ME Super and when I bought a new camera, it was natural to buy a newer Pentax because I can still use my 40 year old lenses! Pentax Lenses I believe even photographers that use other kits …
