Hello from Yorkshire

Hi, my name is Steve, I have just bought myself a K30 and am very much looking foreward in learning how to use it. Since to decline of film I have been using an Olympus bridge camera with reasonable results, however I have become more critical in my old age (or my eyesight is failing) and want to improve. I had a Chinon film camera and as it used the K mount it seemed logical to utilise the lenses I have. I was looking for information on how to do this when I came across this forum which gave me the information.

Welcome Steve from an ex-pat Brit and fellow K-30 user. Don't forget to post some shots when you get a chance.
