Warm greetings from a newbie

Hello everyone! I hail from India. I made my foray into the wonderful world of photography just about a year ago. That was when I got my Canon EOS 500. Reading about photography was always an interest for me and I am thrilled to put theory to practise So, a couple of months later, it was only natural that lens buying addiction set over. I was out there, researching and reading about lenses, when a friend of mine, a pentax owner, introduced me to the wonderful world of M42 screw lenses. I was hooked! I began to scour high and low for these lenses, and read about them. The internet, the old camera repair shop in town. I eventually got myself an adaptor for the m42 screw, and a Helios f 2.0 and I absolutely adore the lens!! It is as sturdy as a tank, and operating the focus ring is such a joy Looking to add a few more M42 lenses to my collection My current area of interest is butterflies.

Welcome to the forum. Although I only have a few, I think the M-42 lenses are great.
