Hello from Indiana

I am a older gentleman age 74 with a number of cameras as I have been collecting for a long time. I would like to sell some of my older equipment but have not got around to putting it together yet. one of my older pentax is a Tower 26 ( Sears & Roebuck) with several lenses, a Takumar 58mm f 2.4 serial 154618 and a Acall made by Kyoei Optical co Ltd 135mm f3.5 serial 80122. and a Tower P.c 35mm f3.5 serial N2FT34677 with original lens cover and original sales price on rear cover from Sears & roebuck of 39.95. I am just going to a new K01 and so far a good start I am using some of my older lens just to get started. I like this forum as lots of info. ( sorry but my real love was a Olympus OM 2n which I still have.)

Welcome to the forum, enjoy the K-01 when you get her, a great piece of kit by all accounts.

Welcome Ken. It's always great to have another Hoosier on board. I think you'll like the K-01 focus peaking with some of those MF lenses.

Welcome Ken. It is nice to see a fellow Hoosier here (actually I'm a transplanted Buckeye, but still)...

Thank you all for the comments

I do have the K-01 and I love it. the software is going to take some time. I have put a old Pentax lens on it and it worked great. but I am going to spend the money and get the new 40m lens.
