Greetings from China!

Hello everybody!

I'm a Pentax-lover from China, and, pretty new to photography.
I tried a Pentax K-01 for several months and traded it with a K-5 because of feeling unstable without my head against the camera.

During the last year I had learned some of the basics and got my first M series prime-lens, trying to replace the 18-55 one. Since there's not much users nor info. of these old things in my local network forums, I'm joining this forum and hoping to learn more about photography.Also, viewing more shooting styles all over the world.

Thanks! Pentax‘s MF lenses are mostly small in sizes, which is the most important point I perfer. Since already have many things in my backpack when hiking, I really don't want any more giant-monsters with me..:P

Welcome to the forum!!
I have both k-01 and k-5, agree, I am more used to the viewfinder than the Liveview screen for focusing... yes, M/K and all m42 series lenses are fun to have, especially when you have the k-5 tuned to have focus accuracy set using the camera AF confirmation.
Enjoy and hope to see some of your shots from China....

that's right.and I sometimes also use the trap focus trick when shooting moving objects, which can't be done with k-01 system.however, i think, without the peak focus mode in live view is a disadvantage on k-5's manual focus
