Sorry for the late. I registered a few days back but could not introduce myself as I was out for a forest survey project. However, I'm Subhajit Paul, Teacher in Botany in a College and an amateur nature photographer. In contrast to wildlife photographers, who shoot wild animals, my subject is 'Plants and forests' with occasional portrait photography. My passion is to use old Pentax M42 mount manual lenses for my nature photography.

I have a collection of 18 M42 lenses of various brands like Pentax Takumar, Helios, Pentakon, Carl Zeiss etc. I use them on Canon body; however, planning to buy a K-5. Most of the M42 lenses are difficult to carry due to their weight; however, mine have superb glass. I'll post some in coming days.

Anyway, thanks to everybody
