Your first DSLR

My first DSLR was a Pentax S1a bought in 1968. I was then a newly minted metallurgist and had just started working as a foundry metallurgist in charge of a non-ferrous foundry. I spent my entire third month's salary on this camera. It was the entry level model and the top of the line model at that time was the Pentax Spotmatic (far beyond my reach). And believe it or not, this camera has just failed after 42 years use. The shutter release jammed when I tested it before taking these photos. The clarity of the lens was something special.
