Hello from Portugal!

I decided to register since I made the bad decision on to buy a used Super Takumar 1.4/50 one year ago.
Let me explain, it had some fungus in it near the blades so I decided that I would give it a clean. I had done this already with nikkor's, mamiya's and others.
Well, I was so suprised with the construction quality of the lens, with the smooth focus helicoidal and with the image quality that I ended up getting too much takumar's for my needs. They are the best I've seen so far.
Then came a spotmatic spII and those russian lens... I want them!
Still, my digital camera is a Olympus Ep-1 and I am waiting for a fullframe mirrorless (please pentax).

So far I have the 4/17 3.5/24 3.5/28 3.5/35 1.4/50 1.8/55 1.9/85 1.8/85 2.8/120 3.5/135 4/200 4/300 and macro-takumar's 4/50 and 4/100

My favorite list is:
1 - 1.4/50
2 - 3.5/24
3 - 4/50 Macro takumar
4 - 4/200
5 - 1.8/85

If I have to blame someone on this it has to be the pentax foruns for those lovely reviews...
So why not register?

By the way having soo much lens is a sickness but let me explain myself... these m42 lenses are really cheap!
Help me

My apologies for the title mistake. For some reason I cannot correct it.
