Hello Pentaxians!

Just got 3 new (old) M42 lenses for my DSLR's. I had forgotten how much control you have using manual lenses! Totally psyched on getting out and using these lenses. Have been a Pentax fan all the way since my first Spotmatic in 1976. Greetings all!

Welcome, its good to see an appreciation for manual lenses. Too many don't use them; they are lost without auto focus.

Welcome from Chicago! It can be fun using the old lenses, some give a very distinctive view.
