Newbie here

Hello everyone, my name is Alan from the UK. I have had a Pentax Optio for many years, which I don't use much these days. However, I do have a few M42 lenses which I do use on a daily basis on my Canon 7D. I also have a number of FD lenses, which sadly I am unable to use on the 7D, but occasionally use on my Canon T90

I think my next digital camera purchase would be a used body that can take full advantage of my FD lenses. So, will be spending a bit of time here and learning what would suit my needs best.

Welcome, I use both systems too, but the right lenses on both, if that makes sense.
