    Oldies but Goodies

    Every so often, Mongo checks, cleans and airs the photographic equipment in his cave. Much of it is Mrs Mongo's Pentax equipment.

    An older second body Mrs Mongo kept was her original Pentax IstD. Mongo checked and cleaned it along with one of Mrs Mongo's older but much loved lenses - a Pentax 300mm f4 ED Manual "star" lens. The two were together on the sideboard after cleaning and caught Mongo's eye as a must shoot photo. (shot with Nikon D4s and 200-500mm Nikon lens @f6.3, ISO 4000, 1/50th with available light)

    Mrs Mongo has a lovely older Pentax 15mm "A" lens which Mongo will love to try on Mrs Mongo's new K1 when see gets one in the very near future - but that's another photo altogether

    Always had a soft spot for Pentax cameras, since my first SLR was a Pentax SFX. Which I note you can now buy on ebay for $8.95.

    Thanks Mary Anne. However, be careful what you, our wish for - just ask Mrs Mongo. For his service, Mongo will eat you out of house and home....

    Thanks for looking in Jim. The slightly older Pentagon gear (and probably today's also) is exception quality. Mongo will not be parting with any of it.

    Hi Mongo,
    My first Camera was an Ashi Pentax SP1000, brilliant camera, I used trouble free for about 12 years, still have it in fact.

    Ha! My very first DSLR was the wonderful Pentax *ist D, still have a soft spot for it and Pentax as a whole. Interestingly, as you know, I also had that beautiful A*300 f4 lens, a real gem, such a beautifully engineered lens.

    yes indeed Lance. We are both former Pentax tragics. Mrs Mongo continues that path.
