Keith from Alabama..

Hi! I am new and looking forward to this new forum. I just discovered that I can use my old Pentax M42 lenses with digital (really behind the times)! I bought two used Pentax bodies, converters, and am learning DSLR photography...sure miss film.

Hi Keith. Welcome aboard the forum. Give it time and I think you will feel the same about film the same way you miss an ex-girlfriend, fond memories but you love the one you are with more. Looking forward to seeing some of your photographs.

Welcome to the forum.

I bought my first Pentax digital body to use my old lenses, and then got hooked on auto-focus and never used them again.
