Hi there!

I've been lurking around for some time, especially in the lens review part of the site. Thought I'd start reviewing some lenses of my own
My name is Stian, I'm from Norway, and I work freelance with cinematography and lighting. Although I primarily dwell in the moving arts, I have recently picked up still photography in order to improve my overall photographic understanding.
I am sad to say that the only Pentax I own to date is the Pentax PC35AF (Pentax' first autofocus compact camera), and I only use that for fun. My weapon of choice is usually the Praktica MTL5 or Olympus OM10, and my trusty companion, the Canon EOS 7D, if I do decide to go digital (usually mounted with a Pentacon 29mm, 50mm or 135mm - all of them with M42 mount).

What Pentax I'd buy, you ask? The 67. No doubt.

Welcome aboard!

The nice thing about this hobby is photography works the same way despite the tool you're using. It's all understanding how the camera works and how to frame images (or just get an image in many cases).

There is something very appealing to the medium format film cameras, that's for sure. It's not cheap anymore (if it ever was) but it's cool. I see 67 and 645 series cameras available used in in classified ads very frequently. People seem to inherit them and don't know what to do with them. They're still not inexpensive.
