Let me introduce myself. Hi to the forum.

Some decades ago I got my first Pentax, the Pentax ME, along with some fine lenses like the M 50mm f1.4, M 50mm f4 Macro and the Tokina RMC 135mm f2.8. I loved the camera and the equipment and I'm an almost fanatic pentaxian since then.
The old lenses are still in use on my digital bodies, the K100 and the K-7. Furthermore I got 2 years ago a Pentax LX film camera in very good shape, one of my alltime dreams, in times of DSLR at least effortable, together with some nice viewfinders. I use the LX with fine grain black & white films for astrophotography.
I am glad that I found this wonderful forum exclusively dedicated to the Pentax line of cameras. I have read many of the lens reviews, which was very useful. And I even could find reviews of all my old lenses mentioned above, which gives an impression how much information can be found here!

I prefer taking photos in nature, from landscapes and do some macro photography, sometimes portraits too. And a bit of astrophotography.

I thank everyone who helps to make this forum such a nice place.

Greetings from the upper Rhine valley, Germany,
from Claus.

Welcome, IMHO the LX was in fact one of Pentax's finest products.
