Latest from Jessops.
I got my K10D from Jessops Chelmsford branch as I had won a lot of Jessops vouchers -- the first sample was a 'Friday Night in the Factory' one and all faulty - it had all purple stripes instead of pictures ! I had to go back and they gave me another which has been OK since ------
Ive only ever owned 1 pentax camera and that was an Optio s10 compact which I absolutely loved. It took fantastic pictures and was extremely tiny I sold it because I thought I wanted an upgrade and I didn't Not one compact ive owned since the s10 has even come close to it. Im toying with the idea of getting a bridge camera but ive also been looking at the Pentax Q compact system I have a soft spot for pentax
I used Spotmatic series Pentaxes in the early 1970s. The cameras and lenses were superb until Pentax seemed to lose its way.
The SPF was great until the meter failed and this happened in all four of our bodies and twice in one of them. When they changed to bayonet mount, the filter sizes and eyepiece fitting changed too. At this point, rather than replace with Pentax bayonet, I switched the 35mm to Nikon.
For some reason, the 67 and 645 ranges escaped this fate and remains top-class.
My 1970's SPOTMATIC F and my 1960's SPOTMATIC I are no trouble -- meters all OK !

Some people are just lucky! Many other owners had the same irritation. My old Pentax lenses were particularly good, though not as rugged as the Nikon optics that replaced them.
