a Pentaxian in Montreal

hi to everyone,
I got my first Pentax DSLR camera in 2010. It's a K7 and i still have it.
(I had been using digital cameras since 2000, and, before that, a simple 35mm film camera).
After the K7, i got an oldish ES-II with the SMC Takumar 35, 55 and 135.
Luckily, I was able to get the genuine Pentax PK adapter for those lenses.
Later, i bought an used (film) KX with a K55 and a K35.
And some serie K, M and A lenses
With the older Pentax lenses, I'm mostly interested in using them with digital bodies.
So far, I have shot only 4-5 films with the KX and ES-II.
But, I bought a few Ektar 100 rolls and I will practice manual photography skills with them.
I really like the old Pentax lenses because of the optical quality and excellent built.
Of course, the newer Limited are also excellent, but, pricier.
The reviews that the users write about the lenses on are a great resource to learn about the lenses.
When I have more experience, I hope to contribute some reviews too.
i wish happy photography to all,
