Not much of a Pentax camera shooter...

But it usually says Takumar or Pentax (or Mamiya or Nikkor, deal ) in front of my 5DII. I'm almost usually shooting manual focus, and prefer a range of renditions to the standard "perfect" lenses - I have no interested in having all my shots look like oversaturated, contrasty, car ads. To wit, while I usually shoot a 5DII or Panasonic GH1 or GF1, out of the 100+ lenses I own, 3 are EF and 2 are m4/3rds. Digital and short flange distances are good to people who grew up on film. Oh, and while I'm a long time Nikon shooter, I'm not partisan - whatever gets me a shot (usually of the street photography sort) gets carried. Somehow Asahi Optical made helicoids have a tendency to be one of those things...

Welcome to the forums!

Now is a good day to get a Kx.

Or for your m4/3's, maybe I can interest you in some of the FD and LTM glass I'm selling on eBay [ID: r*m] with more coming in the next couple days. Or maybe not.

Just out of curiosity: how was today's NYC storm?
