Started with a 120 rangefinder in the 1960's, then a Kodak 126 instamatic. In late 1979 I picked up a Ricoh XR2S, the poor mans Pentax, and a Pentax M 40 ~ 80 Zoom lens. Added a Vivitar 90 ~ 230 zoom and a Sigma 600 Mirror a year or so later. Shot hundreds of pictures on color negative film, some black and white, then discovered the wonders of Kodachrome. Suddenly that was the only film I would use.
I enjoyed film until it became evident that digital was taking over, and picked up the *iSt DL, starting at first just using the old film lenses. Then I picked up a K10D and the 18 ~ 55 kit lens.
Now I've added some other digital lenses, and continue to explore the world of digital imaging.
