Hello K mount lovers !

Hello for all !

I am new in this forum but I may contribute more in the following months !
I discovered the website when searching for lenses review and this is probably the best site for film era lens reviews ! Thanks to all of the contributors of the site
I started on my father's Pentax K200 and I have now the K3, expecting a lot of good surprises from the future FF body !
Concerning lenses, as I don't mind focusing manually, I have some film era primes and a Samyang lens, but I also have more modern lenses for Macro purpose (70mm sigma and 105mm sigma). I bought recently a 70-200mm sigma APO EX I will probably review this week, depending on my time.

Thank you for all, keep reviewing, that is so useful for all of the K mount lovers !

Welcome to the forum, it is indeed and great resource for lens information, but we can't be held responsible for LBA it causes.

Thank you for your kind welcome !
Wow ! You have an impressive collection of lenses (the 135mm is legendary) !
I sometimes wonder if I should buy the 50mm f/1.2, having already the f/1.4 which is one of my favorite lenses... To be honest I don't often shoot wide open, most of the time I close a bit (f/2 to f/2.8) to have sharper images. Is there a difference of sharpness in this range or is the f/1.2 more like an extra option for low light or small DOF pictures?
Thanks again !

Thanks very much, I'm quite happy with them, they do the job that's required.

Of course you should... it requires no justification whatsoever, but if you do it's here https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/122-lens-clubs/74819-post-your-1-2-photos-1-2-only.html
