Canon/Pentax user here!

Hi, I'm Maarten, 18 years old, and I live in The Netherlands.
For digital shooting, I use a Canon 60D, a Tamron 17-50 F2.8, a Canon 50mm f1.8 and a telezoom.

But that's not why I'm here.
I'm here because a few days ago, I bought a Pentax P-30T for a few euros.
Attached to it came a Tokina 28mm f2.8, and I both love them already.
It feels a lot different than my 40 year old Petri 7s, which came from 1968. It has a good meteringsystem, is more advanced, but the thing I love most about it, is it's lens. It's just a joy to work with.
I'm looking for a 80/85mm f1.8/f1/4 for it, but I don't know what a good price is for it, since f1.x lenses are pretty expensive.

Here a picture of both of them

Thanks for reading!

Hi Maarten, and welcome to the Forums.

Thanks for the story about your "new" Pentax. There are many film users here and, although I haven't put a film through my K2 in quite a while, the urge to do so comes on me every now and then!

Enjoy your time here.
