Hello from West Alabama

A retired photographer back to "enjoying" photography! I recently acquired an adaptor allowing M42 lens to be used on my Sony a65. What fun! The color and "feel" to these old lens is refreshing and takes away some of the "digital" look. And with the Sony, manual focus is easy.

Welcome. I am one of those retired photographers also. Imagine what it would be like to use those old Takumars on a Pentax camera?
