i would like to say hello,I am a hobby photographer, I enjoy the PentexForums it's very helpful,the reason I inquired about the site is due to a friend of my, he was a semi pro photographer back in the 70s and 80s shooting Pentax winning scores of competitions, I at this time i shoot with olympus e500, I own Zuiko 14 42mm and 50 200mm lens, as he saw my interest in photography, to my surprise he pulled out his old lenses, which included 35 128mm /135mm/28mm 3.5/ 50 1.2 / and the smc 15mm 3.5, after he saw my eyes he asked if I would like to have them, i did asome work around his house, I of course jumped on it, I did not know what I had at first, but to my surprise I soon found out my good fortune, with the help of this fine site. I am now using them with my olympus, it's a bit tricky in manual, but I am learning.

Hello, i am pondering the thought as to if i should sell my SMC 15mm 3.5 aspherical lens and my SMC 50mm 1.2 to fund a new 7 14mm zuiko, any thoughts would be great. my reasoning behind this is i just looked at some photos of my 50 200mm and was quite impressed of the quality. i am also intrested in the 35 100 by Zuiko. i do love both 15mm and 50mm lens. i love the Quality and build of Pentax Lens.

Thanks Mark
