Hello Pentax Forums!!

I'm a newly registered member on the forums.

Photography is a new found hobby of mine.
I received a Canon T3i for my birthday last year.
I don't have a lot of money to throw into it at the moment and I have been looking for cheaper lens alternatives.

I had heard about being able to use old m42 mount lenses on newer DSLR bodies.
My research brought me to these forums.
I've been coming to the forums, more specifically the lens reviews section, for a little over a month now to do research.
I love these forums! There's so much info!

I recently bought a SMC Takumar 55m f2 lens (m42 mount) from eBay.
I'm now hooked on the old lenses. I love this lens!

I decided to register as a member to post a review of this lens.

I'll definitely be purchasing more Pentax lenses in the future.

I'll be sifting through the many sections of these forums as well now.

I just wanted to post and say Hi!
Also, I wanted to say thanks to everybody for helping with my research through your forum posts.
