Hi,


Last year I pulled my P30 and lenses out of the cupboard in which they had been sitting unused for around 16 years. Got the film developed that was in the Camera and the pictures of the family were great.


My daughter just bought a Canon 70D so that rekindled my interest in photography and I have been buying up some bargains to test (mostly Pentax):


The P30 had Pentax-A 35-70mm Lens plus a Pentax-M 135/3.5 and a Sigma Mintel YS 200mm/4.0


Purchases:


Spotmatic F with 50/1.4 35/3.5 135/2.8 M42's
ME-F (4 copies in various condition) with AF Zoom 35-70mm 2.8
2 x *ist DL's
K100d Super
K-x
Many AF and Manual Lens including 50mm M 1.7, 50mm F 1.7, 50mm K 1.4, FA 100-300m Plus Sigma & Tamron Lenses


I have successfully taken apart and cleaned/repaired a few lens both AF and MF


Information on this site has been invaluable in finding value lenses and a 'great bang for buck'.


Cheers Ross

Welcome to the Forums. Enjoy all you find here (which includes a growing horde of us Aussies). With your "fix it" expertise, you are likely to get a few questions thrown your way as well.

Hi Ross,

Welcome to the Forum. It is a great place for Pentax users to learn and participate.

Playing with old Pentax lenses is great fun. I think you will be impressed with just what can be got out of them.

I hope you enjoy your time here.

Ross from NZ
