after only reading for a few Years... I took the choice to register here.

Hello out there

I'm a middle-aged guy from Germany, taking pictures is one of my Hobbys.
The first Pentax I bought was an used ME back in 2006, but in fact it wasn't my first K-Mount.
I didn't notice that the Vivitar V3000s I had before was already K-Mounted...

Nowadays I use a MZ-5, the last Camera my Grandfather bought and used.
I also own a Spotmatic (and a few other Screw-Mounts,

I entered digital territory back in 2007 by purchasing a K10D.
In 2009 I switched to the K-7 which I already use nowadays, but I will hopefully buy me a new pentax within the next half year.
My glass is a mix of modern and old lenses.
DA 10-17, DA 16-45, FA 4/28-70, DA 2,4/35, SMC-A 1,7/50, SMC 4/50 Macro, Porst MC 1,2/55, SMC-A 4/100 Macro, SMC-A 2,8/100 Macro, SMC-M 3,5/135 and SMC-M 4/200
I like taking Land- and Cityscapes, Macros, People, Concerts, a little bit Street ...

Some of my pictures can be seen here: Fotos & Bilder von der gelbe Fisch - Fotograf aus Essen | fotocommunity

best regards to all of You,

Welcome aboard! I upgraded from K10 to K5 after the first or second price drop. I think there's no better system for a photographer who wants to pursue a more technical hobby. Of course TAv mode is great for just getting outside and taking pictures.

Welcome to the forum, lots of like minded folk here and many of a similar age group too, if you stretch the upper limit a little for me.
