Photos from Pentaxes Past

Introduction

Since the arrival of my Pentax K-1, I’ve found myself looking back at the photos I took with my past Pentaxes. Most of the photos which I’ve been looking at were taken with either my original K10D, or the K-7 which I used to own. I’ve selected ten of these photos – five from each camera – to present here. They are not in any particular order.
