Takumarology?

Hello,

I'm a new blogger on Pentaxforums.
This is my first post.
I have observed this site for some time as a silent member.
I now want to to participate more and make known my interests in Pentaxforums and to it's subscribers.

I began using M42 screw mount Takumars in the 1970"s and grew to appreciate them more with time.
Much later as I collected more I began research on them.

On my own website (you will find by searching Takumar Field Guide ) I have posted my research to date.
The information is available to all who are interested.

I receive feed back on this research including from other members of this forum.
I'm a retired biologist and a local member of Cameraholics.

Regards

droo

Welcome! The interest in Takumar lenses seems on the rise. Perhaps fueled by the owners of mirror less cameras craving decent primes?

Welcome and thanks for sharing. Site looks interesting.

I don't know if you're not wanting to post your site here for some reason, but to possibly save others time, I had to specifically query google to find it. My default search engine didn't retrieve it.

Welcome aboard, that almost sounds like something you'd go and see your Doctor about.
