Welcome to the forum, BTW.
Thanks

Really interesting statistics btw. I had no idea there were that many M42 users. Something else that would be interesting to know is the ratio between Pentax and third party lenses.

Good idea. I'm interested too, so I made a poll:

There are quite a lot of pentax lenses in use
1088 lenses accumulated over about 126 posts means an average of 6 to 7 pentax lenses each
