Hi there

I've just joined the forum. I have been a Pentax owner since 1969 when I bought my first Spotmatic. Some ten years ago i got tired of regular film and started to use compact digitals. I've tried a few, but they never seemed to do what I wanted and photografy went dormant for a few years. Recently I decided to invest in an advanced camera and two weeks ago I bought a K-5 II. Now I suddenly understand what I was missing all these years. Although there are a few more functions to keep track of, the camera is very intiutive and it's pure joy to be able to focus on picture composition instead of trying to get the camera to fire when I actually would like it to.
I've started to consider using my old M42 lenses whith my new camera and I've seen som threads that indicate this is a real possibilty. I'm really looking forward to experimating and mastering light and aperture again, and to be a part of this forum.
