    Hi! I'm a happy dude from Sweden that after getting gravely ill last fall suddenly lost my interest for all my hobbies and got an craving for old cameras instead. I guess that it's proof that photography is just a sickness like all other sicknesses. :wink:

    First I only was interested in Pentax and other K-Bayonet cameras but who could resist a camera just because it hasn't got the right name so now I buy any 35mm SLR's before the AF bodies. It's not that I don't like AF but the design got off track I'm sad to say.

    I'm not much for going out taking pictures and more for preparing them but I'm I novice at this so for now I just study them and just enjoy handling them.

    Hi Malo and welcome from Bruxelles, Belgium.
    Nice avatar.

    What do you think about Nikons from the 1980s?

    Heja Sverige! :smile:

    Glad to hear you're back on your feet after the illness. Some day you should put those cameras to work.

    Welcome to APUG.

    Don't know about sickness but it's definitely an addiction!

    It's a mixed bag as I love the F3 but the F3AF looks like a Russian KV-1 tank from WWII without it's main gun and people would call the police if you'd pull it out in a crowed. :smile:

    I also like the smaller bodies like the FG, FM2 and FE2.

    Ahh, a fellow swede...I never took to photography in the past but I'll see what I can do about putting them to use but they are already to many of them...


    And to the rest of you guys thank for the warm welcome.
