    Just bought a Pentax K1000, 50mm f/1.7 lens, 80-200mm f/4.0 lens, and a flash. Looked to be a decent set of gear. Hopefully all works as claimed. Will now have it along with the ME Super I just got not too long ago.

    Nice! I love the 50mm f1.7 lens. Sharp, good contrast. Have fun! :)

    Actually it will be my 2nd 50mm f/1.7. The ME Super I picked up came with one as well.

    Yea, need to look the ME over real good along with the K1000. Also just got the Nikon FA that needs a good looking over and testing. Just need to get some time when I get back home.

    I now have a small collection of the Pentax f1.7s, I think it's 4 M series, 2 A series & an FA, mainly from family members with their old bodies.
    I've ended up removing the rear group (reversibly it just screws in) from one of the M50's to create a soft focus lens - the focal length is increased to around 100mm so bellows/extension is needed to focus, but it gives the lens a use again :)
