Greetings from California

Long time lurker here and just had a one year anniversary with my k5ii. I prefer manual focus lenses which make up most of my small collection. I'd like to try out fine out photography but have not had the time... yet

Howdy...Welcome .. !
I only shoot Old glass too. Own a 18-135 WR but hardly ever use it.
Pentax and Ricoh......Legacy primes cant really be beat.
Take the time and post some pics.........Ron

Welcome to the forum.

I only manually focus my Canon 17mm TS (no choice), and occasionally the Tamron 90 (if on the rare tripod for a macro shot where focus is critical). And I shoot mostly in P mode :-)

There is a California Pentax Users group which has basically gone inert, though about 10, then increasingly fewer of us, got together 3 or 4 times a couple years back...

Welcome and happy anniversary, older glass features quite heavily with me too.
