I bought my first camera a Pentax Spotmatic in 1975 and now find myself decades later with the same 50mm1.4 lens on my lovely K-7.
Something special about that for me, an unabashed sentimental, to visit the same greenhouse or frame the same mountain view as I did as a teenager through the same piece of glass.
The Spotmatic didn't of course have shake reduction, but I didn't need it so much then
for some reason I did an earlier intro in the Pentax sub-forum with some pics
