Greetings from Buenos Aires

Hi! I'm an amateur photographer with a K-01. After living with the kit lens for a while ( SMC Pentax-DA L 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm AL ) I decided to explore the manual focus lens world. Takumars, Rikenons, Tairs, Spiratones, Meyer-Optiks and the list goes on. That is why I found this excelent source of information.

Happy Shooting from Bue!

Welcome aboard!
It sounds like people are selling the old manual glass down there - to your benefit, I'm sure.

Thank you for the welcome! I think in this electronic device era manual focus lenses and mechanic old cameras are seeing as oddities with no value. Good times to search for hidden treasures. I will definetely try to rescue some of them!

That's the spirit! There are a lot of people here on the forums that work hard to "rescue" old lenses - some have hundreds of them
