Hello. Welcome! I do not shoot either a K10D or Spotmatic (I have a Kx, upgrading to a K5 soon). I do however have some m42 lenses, they can be extremely sharp, but you came to the right place for information on both of those cameras. Enjoy!

Thank You.

@ KxBlaze : both the Kx and K5 are my dream cameras,maybe one day I could manage to get the most out of them, for now the k10d is right at my level.Is the K5 fullframe?its not written in the specs..

@Kerrowdown : Thank You for the link, when I tell people I am shooting a 10,2 megapixel camera they are like "my phone has got 8mpx , and the Nokia N... has 42mpx" they know S...

@c.a.m m42 rulez So far I have three of them, Tamron adaptall2 28-55 f3.5-4, Tomioka Yashinon macro 60 f2.8, and Pentacon 50 f 1.8
I do not even own a auto focus lens ! I dont need them.

Any idea about a great wideangle price/performance lens for my spotmatic ? shooting wideangle on it to get true wideangle. The tamron is way average,I am looking for character Pics coming soon.
