Hello from the South

I must confess that I am only partly in the Pentax camp. My first foray into the world of the SLR came when I was forty and bought a K1000. Over the years I ended up with a number of lenses. In the late 80's I switched to Minolta (still using the K1000 on occasion). When health reasons forced me to give up my darkroom I sold the Minolta gear, but kept the Pentax as well as older range finder cameras and lenses. Early last year I bought an adapter for my Panasonic G1 that allowed me to use once again the glass from Pentax. I find I use them more than I do the Panasonic glass. Would love to see a forum for those of us who use Pentax as legacy lenses.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find others here who've made choices similar to yours.
