Hallo Pentax Planet... ;o)

Hi All... I recently got myself a Pentax K-50 and I'm glad to have found this forum. It has helped me in many decision-making about which lenses to buy and what to do when something doesn't work the way it should. On that subject, I did buy a HOYA HMC Wide-Auto f=35mm 1:2.8 but the aperture blades where not closing. Well, after searching here and the net I took the job of disassembling the HOYA and cleaning the blades. It was not easy but I got it done... and it was a nice fun experience...

I'm am sure that I will be visiting this forum very often since there is always something new and interesting... So people, keep posting so that I have something to read... LOL!!!
