Greetings from sunny Portugal

Hi, I'm Rui from Portugal and unregistered Pentaxian for years.
I have bought a beat-up *istDs in an auction a couple years ago and been having a great time with it.
The reason for registering now is this:
Just a couple days ago I bought a manual focus fixed 50mm 1:1.4f lens from an old Pentax ME which was a bargain and realised that this 30 year old lens is amazingly sharper than my auto-focus 18-55mm. If you like super-sharp pictures and night or indoor pictures there is absolutely nothing like a fixed lens.
