Old timer

Greetings all.
I'm an old film shooter, back in the day I shot with a pair of Pentax LXs and lots of lovely Pentax glass. Now, sadly, I've succumbed to the Dark Side of the Force, shooting MIcro Four Thirds (Panasonic and OM). But I still use a few of my old lenses, adapted to the new format. Naturally, they don't auto-focus, but I have no problem with that -- they never did!

Welcome aboard!!!

My uncle was friends with Ansel. Unfortunately I never got to meet him myself. My Pentax days go back to a Spotmatic II. Before that I had a Mamiya /Sekor 500 DTL as my first SLR. I still have both of them too.

Funny my old manual lenses don't autofocus either, yet I still get great photos. Old film shooter here too, started with a K1000. Still have it too. My old Takumars still work great on my newere DSLR'S. Have fun.
