just joined the forum, getting back into potography, started when I was in the service and bought a pentax spotmatic,over that period of my life I aquired 2 spotmatics, several screw mount lens, filters etc. I got married had a family photography took aback seat for the most part.
Now that Im in retirement(forced) Im getting the itch to get back into potography. I currently have a kodak z950 point and shoot, it can take decent pictures under the right conditions, but aDSLR is where I want to go. Doing research on DSLRs the fact that pentax will accept the screw mount lens was very intriguing. I have used pentaxs and have the lens that could be used, seems like a no brainer. I am looking at
getting a Kr by spring, hopefully.

Welcome to the forum and back to photography! It is nice to be able to use those old lenses on a modern DSLR. You'll find a lot of people on the forum that use the Takumar lenses as their primary equipment.

What lenses do you have?

Nice group of glass! Make sure to get a genuine Asahi Pentax adapter to use them. These seem to go in and out of stock at Pentax. I bought mine on Ebay a couple of years ago when there was no new ones available, paid a lot more than the new ones.
