    Well, starting thursday I can get into the darkroom for free, and we have a film scanner, so I will be posting here a whole bunch as I go to full metal, mechanical, manual (Pentax Spotmatic + Super-Takumar 50mm f/1.4) for b/w with Kodak Tri-X.

    Anyway, these are b/w conversions from my Pentax K100D. Tell me what you think.

    I'd say you have a good eye for street photography, and what looks good as a B&W image. :thumbup: #1 is a fun shot! :D

    I'm looking forward to seeing your film stuff! ​

    Thank you, terri. :D I've only been shooting since January so thats a big complement. My main interest is in street, travel, and photojournalism (even though most of my pictures have fallen outside of that realm so far).

    How do you like that ME? Does the aperture-priority autoexposure work well?

    What lenses do you use?

    Glad to hear from another Pentax user. :D

    I've used the ME almost exclusively for HIE work. Pentax, in its wisdom, enabled me to use all my modern lenses for the MZ-S on the ME. :thumbup: I have a 50mm f/2.8, and 85mm f/1.8, a 135mm and 21mm WA whose speeds escape me at the moment. :lol: Great lenses, all.
