Im back!

Im happy to announce that I have officially returned to Pentax. Although I am new to I have appreciated Asahi, Pentax and Spotmatics for some time.

I have owned Pentax SLRs and they have been safely put away in storage. I inherited a good number of Takumar lenses (see below) several years ago from an uncle who was a professional photographer in Mxico. They too have been in storage.

After much internal debating I decided to make the switch from Nikon and to purchase a Pentax k-5 along with several Limited glass (77mm, 43mm, 15mm) and am extremely satisfied! I have also been having much fun after purchasing a Pentax K adapter to screwmount for my Takumars... Im in heaven!

Below is a list of the Pentax equipment I know have in my possession:

Asahi Pentax ESII, (2) Asahi Pentax Spotmatic, (2) Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic (1 black), Pentax K-5

Pentax-FA 43mm f1.9 Limited, Pentax-FA 77mm f1.8 Limited, Pentax-DA 15mm 15mm f4 Limited, SMC Pentax-M 50mm f2, SMC Pentax-A 50mm f1.7, Vivitar 28mm f2, Asahi SMC Takumar 50mm f1.4, Asahi Fish-Eye-Takumar 17mm f4, Asahi S-M-C Takumar 24mm f3.5, S-M-C/Super Takumar 35mm f2, Asahi Super Multi Coated Macro Takumar 50mm f4, Asahi Super Multi Coated Takumar 55mm f1.8, Asahi Super Multi Coated Takumar 135mm f2.5, Asahi Super Takumar 135mm f3.5, Asahi Super-Takumar 200mm f4, Asahi Super-Takumar 300mm f4, Vivitar 28mm f2.5, Vivitar 200mm f3.5

Im in the market to purchase a BG4 grip and an extra D-L190 battery - So if you have any you are willing to part with please pm me.

Looking forward to being a part of this forum and community!

Bonjour jhuerta,

I accept donations, too ... and I'll even forward you the postage costs to boot!

All kidding aside, "welcome back" and glad that you're happy ... your post made me smile.

Salut, John le Frog

That sentence takes on different meaning around Easter

To the OP, welcome back. It's reassuring that some people are dropping other brands for Pentax. Enjoy all those lenses.
