An SLR of my own

After getting a shock when I went to a used photographic equipment shop, I went onto ebay in seach of better deals.

I got a 1982 Ricoh KR-10 Super for $22, much cheaper than the 1984 Pentax Program-A that was selling for a blood-sucking $225 at the shop.

It came in the mail yesterday afternoon.

The 50mm f/2.0 lens that came along with it is a dodgy specimen. I intend to hunt for a better one, something fast, hopefully to the tune of f/1.4 and $70.

Meanwhile, my 28-105mm zoom lens has a mount to call its home.

Yeah, already went through a roll of film to check the lenses and metering accuracy. Seems to be fine except for chromatic abberations at the zoom lens' widest.
