Greetings from Canada

Hi Folks,

Just joined the Forum. I've been lurking for months now benefiting from the advice and reviews. I hope to be able to contribute to the community more soon.

I got into photography through Pentax in the 1980s. I worked my way up to a Super Program body and a bunch of nice manual lenses, but then I moved onto other formats (medium and large). I took a break from serious photography in early 2000 but came back in a big way (hobby-wise) in 2014.

I joined the forum because I'm now using Pentax 645 lenses on my Sony A7 camera with tilt-shift adapters. The other option was Mamiya 645, but the Pentax-A 35mm was supposed to be excellent, and I just prefer the look and feel of the SMC-A lenses. They are just like the ones I used on my old Super Program!

My Mirex adapters (for tilt-shift) will be arriving soon, at which point I'll be able to post some useful reviews and feedback on the lenses to add to the database. Currently I have (in SMC-A) the 35mm, 45-85mm and 150mm. I've tested them on a straight adapter and they're fantastic. I'll know in a couple months how they do as tilt-shift lenses.
