New from Kansas

I've been a Pentax owner since the '70s and still consider myself to be an enthusiastic amateur. I have been watching the development of DSLRs and finally decided it's time for a K-30. This forum is amazing and I'm impressed with the available information and the helpful, friendly people. I plan to make use of it and hope to be able to contribute too.

I understand I can use my old M and A series lenses although I'm still a little confused on functionality.

Welcome to the forum, yes you can still use your lenses, one of the joys of being a Pentax owner.

Hi Ranchwagon
Welcome to the forum.
I don't have a K30, I'm using a K5, but I'm sure the process for using the older lenses will be the same or similar.
I have just started using an A 50/1.7 and also a Super Takumar 50/1.4 with M42 converter, great fun using these old manual lenses.

Is really great to help with the process of using these lenses.
