Hello

I'm new to the forum, though I've been lurking for years, mostly reading lens reviews. Although I've been shooting for a while, I'm new to Pentax. I use mirrorless cameras, and have been having a great time adapting lenses. Most recent Pentax additions include the SMC Pentax M 50 f1.4, 135 f2.5, and 200 f4 as well as a yellow Takumar 50 f1.4. I look forward to shooting with them all and adding some reviews!

Welcome to the forums - good to have you with us There are some fantastic Pentax lenses around, as you've found out. Re the Takumar you mentioned... when you say "yellow", do you mean that the optics have a yellow cast to them? If so, you can restore them to original clarity quite easily, should you wish. Take a look at this thread - you might find it interesting...

Yes, the glass is yellow, I'm assuming due to use of radioactive elements? Thanks for the link!
