I have been a Pentax film user for a number of years and am making the switch to digital slr, and have decided to continue with Pentax rather than Canon or Nikon. (I also had Canon EOS film equipment, which I never liked.)

I look forward to learning from the experienced Pentax users here.

Thank you.

hello out there in Pentax land

About a year ago I realized I was shooting mostly Pentax lenses on my Canon DSLR and wanted to upgrade my camera. Lucky for me, first a K10d and then a K20d became available in almost new condition for a very good price at the local camera shop (Glazer's- Seattle). I have had similary good luck landing lenses. Recently I found a SMC-F 50mm f1.7 for 10 dollars at a yard sale in Tacoma. Not sure how many lenses I have now to fit this camera since it takes M42 as well as bayonet but here goes.
Pentax/Tamron 28-200 f3.8-5.6
Pentax DA 16-45 f4 zoom lens
Takumar 80-200 f4-5.6 zoom lens
Pentax SMC-F 100-300 f4.5-5.6 zoom lens
Pentax SMC-F 50mm f1.7 prime lens

Manual Focus
Spiratone20 mm f2.8
Pentax-M 24mm f2.8
Pentax-A 28mm f2.8
Super Takumar 35mm f3.5 (M42)
Pentax-M 50mm f1.2
Pentax-M 50mm f1.4
Pentax-M 50mm f1.7
Pentax A 50mm f1.4
Pentax A 50mm f2.0
Pentax SMC-Takumar 55mm f1.8 (m42)
Helios 58mm f2 lens
Mamiya Sekor 55mm f1.8 (M42)
Mamiya Sekor 50mm f2(m42)
Pentax-M 50 f4 Macro lens
Pentax-SMC Takumar 100mm macro lens
Pentax Bellows Macro lens 100mm
Pentax-M 135mm f3.5
Pentax-M 200mm f4
Pentax SMC Takumar 200mm f4
Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f3.8 zoom lens

I am sure I am forgetting about something here, but this is the majority of what I
have. As you have guess I shoot a lot of close-up macro work and some people and most recently birds as the 100-300 allow me to get close enough to photograph them. I have many pics on flickr at
