Hi

I am a EOS 7D user and I am discovering the vast options of using manual Pentax M42 lenses on my EOS 7D.
This forum has valuable information.

Thanks and feels nice to join in.

Welcome!

Hello chikkad, Welcome to the Pentax Forum!
Hope you enjoy your time here, we're a pretty friendly bunch. As long as you don't chop up any of our wonderful legacy lens mounts, that is.
We've had a few guests come by just to ask questions regarding the 'chop' and, as you might imagine, they got the frosty, cold shoulder, snake eye, you get the idea. They never did join as members, can't figure out why.
Anyway, if you love photography and use (unmodified) Pentax lenses, you are OK in my book!

What Ron said

Welcome aboard! Oh, and of course, we all know those vintage Pentax lenses produce much nicer pictures on a proper Pentax body!

Welcome. I do the same as you, but also have a Pentax body. I actually find it easier to use M42 lenses on my 7D because the adapter stays with the lens. They are cheap enough to have one per lens. Manual lenses are more artful to use for video as well.

Which old lenses are you enjoying with your 7D?

A135mm/f2.8 manual lens and a SMC Takumar 300/f4. Rest are all Canon EF lenses on which I spent a lot. Discovered Taks a few months ago and like them.
