Greetings from "Manual-Lens-Addict"

Hello everybody!. I'm new member here, but spend a lot of time on this pentax forums to check, lens and camera.
I'd really like to thank all the members here who share all information, knowledge about Pentax, this was a really big help for me. It's just awesome!!! Thanks.

I had a Pentax K10d, my first DSLR, for 8 years and just bought some weeks ago a Pentax K5 iis.
I love the old manual lenses and I will try to write a few tests and /or information on my last purchases used with the K5iis:
- KMZ HELIOS 44-2 1:2 55mm (M42)
- KMZ INDUSTAR 50-2 1:3.5 50mm (M42)

Thanks again to make live this forum!
