Great forum!

I'm a long time camera collector, with interests spanning from old cut-film cameras to modern digitals. My interest in Pentax was re-kindled with the purchase of a Bessaflex, made for a short period around 2005 and which has a body design reminiscent of my old Topcons from the '70's. The Bessaflex has the M-42 screw mount, which sent me looking through my collection for Takumar M42's. I found a 35 3.5, 50 1.4, and a 135 3.5, all smc, along with a Spotmatic SP2. Now I just have to try them out. I really appreciate all the information available on this site and I hope to be able to contribute.
