Hello from Oregon

I stumbled onto this site while searching for advise on a moderate zoom lens for a Spotmatic SP F. I am virtually all digital, but I began many years ago with various 35mm cameras as well as medium format cameras. I mostly used Leica cameras but also Minoltas and in later years I got back to a Pentax. (I used a Pentax H1a while in Vietnam in 1966) I will not likely be a member who comes here every day although I respect and admire those who are faithful to film cameras, especially the good ones.

Welcome! If you haven't done so already you should browse our lens database for Takumar lenses here, perhaps you'll find what you are looking for!

Greetings from just north of the (OR/WA) border
My M42 'moderate' telephoto is an old JCPenney 80-200mm f/3.5 but it was just replaced by the smc-A 70-210 f/4. One old classic for another.
