Thank You. I shoot a K20D and picked up a K10D for my Grandson. We will be shooting together
and intend to be involved here a little later on. This site is very interesting.

Hello again. Just a little background on myself; I was seriously into photography in the old film days.
I used a Pentax PZ1 with an assortment of lenses which have been put away in a large Pelican water tight
case for between 15 and 18 years. I thought it was all worthless gunk until recently learning of the compatibility
with Pentax DSLR's and past lenses. All my lenses were FA's. I was shocked to learn of the current value of my
FA* 24mm f2.0 and my 1.7 AE adapter. I am very excited to renew an old passion and to teach my Grandson and
Granddaughter. The only lens that deteriorated during that long period was my FA 100-300. It developed fungus.
It was my favorite lens and was exposed to moisture more than once. All the other equipment was still close to pristine.
Thank You for the welcome.
