Hi there from Holland

Hello all!

I learnt photography as a kid on a Pentax KX and later on an ME-Super (the latter, I still own and use it, Fullframe for almost nothing!) In the digital era I use two systems, both respect their legacy. Pentax and Nikon have never changed their lens mount, for which I am very grateful.

My first digital Pentax was a K20D, awesome, but the K5 was better in low light. Sadly I had to sell the K5, but the need for a Pentax remained, so I went for a K-01.
I have a whole bunch of relative short Takumars and K-lenses. For tele and 1:1 macro, I use my Nikkor primes on the Pentax through an adapter from Fotodiox (removed the glass element).

Welcome to the forums! Good to see you still enjoy the good old lenses. Pity about the K-5 but the K-01 is no bad substitute.
