Chinon film + Pentax digital user

Hello everybody. I have been a user of K-mount cameras for quite some time now, although not Pentax. My first SLR was a used, re-badged Chinon CE-4s, which fit perfectly to my tight student budget. Different lenses were added over time, mostly prime. When I decided to go digital a couple of years ago, Pentax was the obvious choice. Since I did not have much time for doing photography in the meantime, the old glass was not used as much as some of it deserves, but I hope to find some time for it someday. I have basically stopped using my old film bodies, but I still keep them around. When I recently decided to go auction shopping for a "new" used lens, I found the review database of pentaxforums very valuable. So I decided to join.

Welcome. I'm actually turning into quite a Chinon devotee actually myself. My new GAF (CES) is a killer camera and the Chinon 50mm lens that came with it is just fabulous.

Thanks for the welcome. The Chinon 50mm is probably the best lens I have. Most of the time I carry it in my small photo bag, and sometimes it feels even more useful for the APS-C sensor than for full film.
