Hello from Normandy in France

I just joined the forum.
I have read a number of posted articles and felt that i could also share with you.
I am an old timer photographer, my first camera was a box camera from an old aunt
when I was 10.
My oldest cameras are a Pantax Auto-110 with flash, 18, 24 and 50mm lenses.
Then I bought a Pentax P30 with 50mm F2 lens, and I added a Tokina 35 - 135mm zoom.
Subsequently I have owned a number of other point and shoot cameras and have not
done much serious photography.
But I just bought a micro 4/3 Panasonic GF3 plus the adaptors to use my old lenses.
So I am trying out my Pentax 110 lenses with the RJ adaptor that includes an iris to
step down from f2.8 to something smaller. i also have ordered a second hand 70mm
lens to try out. But getting good focus is not easy without an optical viewfinder...
