Greetings from Verona

A salute to the entire community from Verona-Italy.

Please excuse my English (translated by Google), and any blunders that I hope will enjoy.

I started taking pictures in 1982 with an MX with a M 50 F1.7 a 28 f2.8 and a 200 f4 plus a Kenco MC7 doubler and a flash of the National. Later, I took a used Ricoh XR-1 with Rikenon 50 F1.7 xr.
After 25 years my beloved MX took a shot on the shutter button losing the meter and the mirror up, so I put everything aside and I purchased a Canon compact that I just wanted to document my work (restorer).
About a year ago in a flea market I bought a 50 KA f2 (new never used) and a M 100 f4 macro for 33 .
100 The macro was the glue of the front lens impaired by moisture and milky. With the help of a technician to a laboratory for analysis I obtained a glue for microscope slides and have adjusted the lens.
This success gave me back the desire to photograph, so I bought a used Pentax K-r which I am very satisfied and now I'm always with the camera in hand.
I really hope in my first trip to the USA.
Also welcome to my house!

Welcome to the forum, I've always had a soft spot for Italy, especially for one of your nearby neighbours, whos name also begins with V.

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you got a great deal on the 2 lenses at the flea market.
