Hi from France

Hi all,

After some lurking, I'm registering here. You might know me from other forums like MFLenses, or via my site on the Takumars.
For those who don't know who I am, I'm a young french man, who started photography 3 years ago by buying a K100D. I've discovered the possibilities of a reflex system, then started to buy manual lenses because they are cheaper. I mainly use Takumar lenses, some other in screwmount, and a few K ones (a 55/1.2 and the Pentax 200/2.5).
Some figures :

Lenses :
From 15 to 1000mm (24x36), 45 to 400mm (6x7)
Apertures : from f/1.2 to f/45
157 different lenses went into my hand (excluding twins and borrowed ones) in 3 years

Bodies :
APS-C (Pentax K100D)
24x36 (some bodies, mostly Spotmatics)
6x7 (Pentax 67 and 6x7)

Most used films :
Efke 25 (135)
APX 100 (135)
Efke IR820 (135)
Shanghai 100 (120)
APX 400 (135)
TX 400 (120)

Happy to hear news from it. Did you clean it, or leave it as it was when I sold it to you ?

Bonjour and welcome

If you're into all things Takumar I'm sure the Takumar Club thread would be glad of some of your images. I'm a sucker for the manual glass too, especially the Taks.

I cleaned it and have used it every now and then.
