Hello from England

I've been using Pentax Forums for ages, deciding on lenses, but just took the step of registering. I'm a proud owner of a K-3, my first Pentax. I chose Pentax for I'm sure the same reasons you all have: great price to feature and performance, plus the ability to use all those lovely old lenses, whether PK or M42.

I've kind of gone overboard on the lenses, frankly, and now own about 40 of various sizes and shapes. I found myself fascinating by East German and Russian optics, and they are indeed great things. Just bought a dilapidated Tair-3 300A. Still learning how to use it, but it is already clear that the optics are extraordinary compared to anything in that focal range I've used previously. I hope to have time to post about some of the rarities I've picked up, and how they work on the Pentax.

Cheers!

Thanks, everybody. Here are some images from some of those lenses, taken (respectively) with a Tair 3, a Steinheil Culminar 135mm (the picture is of a Norwegian bill, BTW), an Edixa Xenar 50mm, and a Meyer-Optik Orestegor 200mm:
