New kid on the block...

Hi! I'm new to this forum, but not really to Pentax. Last summer (2015), after my cousin gave me an old SMC 50mm 1.7, I found out I could attach it to my Sony A7s via a Fotodiox adaptor and use it manually. Happy with the results, I then bought a brand new 77mm Limited, after that a used 21mm Limited, then a used 35mm Macro Limited, and finally a new 43mm Limited. I also bought a brand new K-50, and more recently a used K-5 IIs. I'm not saying I would leave Sony for Pentax, but I'm glad to have been introduced to a different kind of gear... and I dare say to another philosophy regarding photography. As for the lens, I think they have an "organic" quality that is lacking with the ― also excellent ― Sony products.
