Introducing myself

Hi Pentax community,

This is my first post. I am ACG from N.Ireland.
I loved my pentax ME which I purchased in 1980 and it was used regularly until I switched to digital in 2000.
Over the last couple of years I became an ardent M4/3 user but I switched to FF technology in Dec of last year when I purchased a sony a7r and haven't looked back!!
Being able to use my legacy lenses again has been nostalgic and it is such a joy to use these old manual lenses again and to purchase new second hand additions to my collection.
Therefore I come to this forum as a pentax lens user!!

For any of you wondering about the compatibility of these 30+ year old lenses with a 36mp sensor, I can reassure you that they produce wonderful images.
I am using the smc M 20mm F4, smc K 28mm F3.5, smc M 35mm F2.8, smc M 50mm F1.7 and smc M 100mm macro F4 (and bellows). I will post examples in due course.

The forum is excellent and I look forward to both contributing and learning so much from the informative posts.

Your most welcome here, it will be interesting to see some of your Sony images, as not many of us have gone that route.
