Hello from London (Ontario, Canada)

Hi all;

Long-time lurker here. Lots of great images and information, which I've enjoyed a great deal. Time to sign up and log in!

Here's my photographic equipment history.

Began shooting with my brother's Praktica LTL-3 in 1980.
Was given a Minolta SR2 soon after.
Ended up buying a Minolta X-700 (1985).
Currently I use a Canon 20D that I fell into but have adapters to use Pentax lenses, both M42 and K mount, though with only one of each adapter I'm having to swap between them, which means I don't use them as much as I'd like.

My M42/PK lens roster includes:

SMC Takumar 100mm f4 Macro
SMC Takumar 135mm f3.5
M 50mm f1.7
A 50mm f1.7
K 135 f3.5
Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows M42
Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f3.5(M42)
Vivitar Series 1 Close Focus 135mm f2.3(M42)
KMZ Helios 44-2 58mm F/2

At some point I'll have to actually start posting photos!

I have a couple friends in that area, I don't get to visit as much as I'd like.
