Hi, I'm new to this forum

Hello everyone My name is Craig. I recently purchased an adapter so I could use my old Pentax lenses on my EM5 mll and EM10. They were used on a Pentax ME Super and a Ricoh XRS back in the '80's. I wasn't expecting much from the old lenses but I was blown away by how well they work with modern digital cameras. You just don't see todays lenses built like the Takumars were built. I have to say, I again found a long lost love of my old Pentax gear.

Hi Craig, and welcome to the forums - glad you could join us! It's great that you kept your old glass... it really does work very well with modern cameras. Takumars have a big following here, as I'm sure you'll find

Welcome to the forum, I'm kinda an older glass fan too, but don't tell my "Ladies" as they are not aware of their age.

Yeah, there's nothing like the older "glass and brass" lenses. Take your time and they won't let you down.
