And jet another new old one :)

Hi all,
I've been reading along for quite a while and now thought it's about time to join in. I don't know if I can contribute much but will do my best.
I'm not doing fine art or such, just pixel grabbing what catches the eye. Sometimes I convert it into something arty or use it for illustration purposes.

Pentax MX was my first, some 30 odd years ago. Since I still had some Asahi lenses I naturally went for Pentax when going digital. It started with a Samsung GX10 which is a re-branded Pentax D10, next came a very brief period with a D30 and now it's the K5 which I really love. The Asahi's have more or less gone and been replaced by some Sigma and Pentax lenses. I've tried quite a few to fit my needs and was often disappointed by the Pentax lens quality. Most came with wild aberrations and screaming loud focus noise My favourites are now from Sigma, a 35mm / f1.4 and a 85mm / f1.4.

I'm dreaming oft a full frame mirrorless with a k-mount - Pentax do you hear me ))

A nice evening to you all from Hamburg - Germany
