Greetings from Holland

Hello all,

I just took over a nice collection of five Pentax slr'ses from a collector. Until now I almost exclusively was busy with rangefinder camera's. Since most of the Pentaxes appear in a good user state, I want to go taking pictures with them asap. This forum seems most adequate for questions for a beginning 'Pentaxian' likeme, and exchange of experience!

MV1, ME, ESII, S1a, SV

Well, if you allow me, I have two questions to start with.
1. The M42 mount camera's didn't come with a lens. Which standard lens would you recommend - I am thinking of lenses which came originally with these camera's;
2. The MV1 is missing its cover of the winding lever: if someone has a spare part laying around I would be most interested (may be chrome or black), not sure if it is leaking light without the cover.

Btw I serviced many rangefinder camera's (for myself and other users) in the past and if needed I will also CLA the Pentaxes.

No such thing as a 'standard' lens - use the lens best suited for the job in hand, but perhaps most useful is the Super Takumar 35mm in M42

Welkom op de forum.

For standard lens, 50mm are quite easy to find and are most of the time cheap and good so that would be a good start.
