Grettings from Poland from new Pentax user


I'd like to say Hello to everyone here. I'm new user of Pentax K-5 (I bought it 2 days ago) so I decided to join Pentax Forum. Currently I have only one lens - Zenit 44K4 58/2 which for time being looks very intersting for me, I feel like 20 year ago when I shot photos with russian Zenit TTL camera with this lens but with M42 instead of Pentax K mount. Tomorrow I'm going to buy Tamron 17-50/2.8 and I hope it will as good as I respect.

Welcome to the forum.

I do own the Helios 44K 58/2, which is the same lens, and actually a copy of the war time (or pre war) Zeiss Biotar 2/58; they mainly improved the coatings. I'm still astonished what this lens can do, taking in account how old the design is. Center sharpness is nearly second to none. Also, with the 44 it seems there was not such an extreme copy variation as with many of the other Helios and Jupiter lenses.
