Hi Folks,

Just want to introduce myself. I'm an enthusiastic amateur and I have recently become interested in vintage lens after acquiring an SMC Takumar 1.8 55mm. I'm loving both the results from the lens itself and the fact that shooting manually encourages me to learn and consider my shots more carefully. I'm using a canon dslr with an adapter.

Hoping to acquire some more decent equipment and advice!

Welcome Peter -- you've come to the right place for discussing vintage Pentax glass. Such discussion pops up all over, but particularly in the general lens discussion forum and in the relevant lens clubs, such as the Takumar club, the K club, the A club, the M club ...

Thanks, the Takumar club sounds like a good place to start.
