That's okay I started with....

Out of the blue I walked into a photo retailer in 1974 while training as an officer in the Canadian Navy out of CFB Esquimalt and purchased a Konica T3 with the "kit" lens, a 50mm f1.8 or 1.7 can't quite remember.  This camera was simplicity itself and was only shutter prefered, most at the time were aperture preferred.  And just like the Samyang lenses being sold today, I set the f stop on the lens and the camera chose the shutter speed, everything was manual with no autofocus.  So all my early lenses were primes, my favourite at the time was a "Bushnell f2.8 135mm" lens made in Japan, I'm betting Cosina was the manufacture.

This camera is still one of the best bodies to own as it would function without any power if the battery went dead, so if you are going on a treck in brutually low temperatures, this is the baby to own.
