I grew up on Pentax equipment and I use it to this day. I used a Pentax KM I think and then I got a Pentax MX because it was the smallest 35mm camera made at the time. I wanted something small because I was a skater and I wanted something less cumbersome. Also the MX got me, which was invaluable at the time, a motor drive to get a sequence. The K1000, when it came out, was just my favorite camera. Honestly, it is the camera that I use to this day, it is the camera of my choice. Different lenses over the years become my favorite lenses, for a very long time. For a lot of my early music stuff it was the 28mm lens and when I was still using a flash, 28mm f/2.8. During the skateboarding years I used almost exclusively the Takumar 17mm f/4. It was head and shoulders above every other lens and wasn’t bulky. The 17mm f/4 only stuck out an inch from your camera and had the filters built into it. It was an incredible piece of glass. When I got more into shooting bands the 15mm f/3.5 became a real favorite of mine, but it was a real bulky piece of glass, so my compromise and go-to lens probably for the last 25-30 years has been the 20mm, f/2.8 and there is also a 20mm f/4.
