Hi Adam and Pentax fans

I am new to the Pentax Forum by I have been reading some of the good stuff you guys share here. My story is simple: I have been shooting with my Canons DSLR's for quite some time until one day I heard about DSLR with older manual focus lenses —and specifically —the legendary Takumar 50mm and wanted to get one for myself. I got one that came with an Spotmatic and immediately I started to use it (the lens). One day I got curious about the Spotmatic and decided to try it. I cleaned it up, put new light seals and mirror bump, put a roll in it and really loved it. That's how I got into film photography. Now I have expanded a little my pentax collection and have a Spotmatic II and a K1000 along with a few other lenses.
