From Portugal...

Hy, I'm Carlos Gill from Portugal and a new Pentax user.
I found Pentax world by K30 and I like a very much the system, the logical and the way used by Pentax to give ours pictures. I have some doubts about to use old lenses with K30 but I hope to find the solutions here. Excuse me about my poor english...

Hello Carlos . Welcome to the Forums and the Pentax family, . If yo decide to use older glass on your K-30 remember that if it doesn't have an A setting on the lens you will need to go into the menu and select the allow Aperture ring . that is the first setting I change on my DSLR's. I use a fair bit of old lenses .

Welcome to the Forums, Carlos. Using old lenses with the newer Pentax DSLRS is a lot of fun. There are some very good old lenses and they do not cost much. I have quite a few. Post some pics for us soon. Portugal is an interesting place. And your English is fine (better than my Portugese!)
