Autistic Newbie from Uk

Hi .

I have always been a Minolta SR user , but coming to Digital , only a Pentax K10d could easily use manual lenses and I much prefered it to the Nikon / Canon alternatives .

I actually bought a 28mm / 50mm / and 80-200 zoom just to use with the camera .
I realise that it is outdated now , but it suits me OK , if a little heavy and bulky .
I would really like a Pentax with the new 16 meg sensor , but am content to wait for a while until it trickles down into a lighter more entry level camera !

My manual K lenses are also adapted to my old Leica Digilux 3 / Panasonic L1 [ 4/3rds ] and most recently , to a Panasonic G1 . All bought used or ex-dem .

I hope to learn from this forum .

I would also like to welcome you to the forum. You will find a wealth of knowledge here, and everyone is quick to offer help when needed. Noticed that you are a Minolta shooter. My first 35mm was a Minolta SRT-101. Shot slides primarily. I still have it, but it hasn't been in working condition for a number of years. I currently shoot a K20D. So, enjoy your time in the forum.
