Hello from Jacksonville, FL

Hello to everyone here. I came across this site while looking for a review of the Pentax 35mm f/2 (old M42 mount). I noticed there was a lot more and decided to sign up.

I gotta admit that I currently shoot (mostly) Canon (40D) but the Pentax glass has always been good to me. My father started me off with a Pentax 6x7 body and a 105/2.4, 150/2.8 and 200/4 set-up that he bought long before I was born. It was a ton of fun, even though my G-SLR (giant SLR!) made only 9 shots from a roll of 120 instead of the normal 10 - I think my winder is slightly off. One of my best and still favorite photos came from the 105/2.4 and I hope to pick up some older 35mm lenses and add those to my Canon via an adapter to repeat.

Anyone who's got suggestions or questions, I'd be happy to answer. Thanks and I'll be reading around!

Welcome to the forum! There are several of us from the Jacksonville area, and several within an hour or so from Jax. I work in Jacksonville, and live about 20 miles north.

Let me know if there is anything that I can do for you!
