Checking in from Raleigh-NC area

Hey, all,

I returned to 35mm film photography a little over a year ago after picking up my great grandfather's Pentax Spotmatic II. The camera uses a 1:1.4 50mm SMC Takumar lens and it takes gorgeous photos when I do my job of correctly setting up everything. I'd love to find a zoom lens for it, but I'm not entirely sure I even know what the correct specifications are for a new lens.

Welcome to the Forums. I can't help with the Zoom question. I have never used a screw mount lens. I'll leave that to those more knowledgeable than I.

I'm in Raleigh myself. I've not used film since I put my canon elph in the attic.
