This is just a quick note to introduce myself. I am a retired university professor who is reestablishing photography as my hobby. In the 1970s I shot a lot of slides and photos on my Pentax MX that I still own along with 28mm, 50mm, 100mm macro & 135mm lenses. When I retired I bought a Canon T3ii before discovering that I could use my old lenses on a K-01, which I bought. My Canon gathered dust as I learned to use my old lenses on the (ahem!) idiosyncratic K-01. I am trading in my Canon equipment on a K-3. The Canon was fine, but I love the old lenses. I am also thinking about shooting some film with my old MX.

PentaxForums has helped me to understand and appreciate my old and new cameras. I am looking forward to learning more from you.

PS. The attached JPeg is fairly low resolution. What resolution do you recommend for email attachments and/or posting to this site? Thanks?
