Old glass junkie

Hi everybody!
I have just diagnosed myself as an old glass junkie........started off with a Tak 135/3.5 and now have a serious addiction.
Supertak 50/1.4, Meyer-Optik 135/2.8,Helios 44, Pentacon 29/2.8 and who knows what...
I hope this condition is not terminal,but I somehow expect it to be....
Oh well, well. Still a Canon owner though, but a proud Pentax owner too.....just bought a Spotmatic (came with a lens )
What impressed me again and again trying to find information about old M42 lenses, was how many times pentaxforums had the best info and the most informed people.
So now I am one of you and humbly hope to be one of those that can contribute to somebody else's quest in the future.

Welcome to the forum, there's a lot of folk around here still using the older glass to great effect.

Welcome to the Forum!

There are quite a few of us around here. Between the M42, and then the K, M and A lenses, there are plenty of opportunities to overdose.
