Greetings from Greece!

Hello to all the Pentax forum community!

My name is Panagiotis and friends preferably call me with the short name Panos.
I joined the Pentax forum mostly for the extended of your member knowledge seen and read in the lenses categories. I'm a fan of Russian lenses an in your forum there is a great database that can help people an knowledge on this lens category.

I used be an owner of more than 15 Russian lenses in the past which me and my father gave away some time for pennies.... Now I'm an owner of an Helios 81n (50mm f/2) Nikon mount and a jupiter 21m (200mm f/4) M42 mount, which I'm using on a Nikon D7200.

I wish you a nice day!

Thank you!

Yes indeed, your forums are globally known as an archive for Russian lenses and not only! You have done excellent work!
Well I'm trying to spent money but my wife isn't cooperative... Welll, I'm kidding!

Yesterday I bought a Jupiter 21m from France and I'm anxious to receive the parcel.

I forgot to note that I'm from Greece - Athens.

Hello Panos, and welcome to the forums - glad you could join us!

Congratulations on the Jupiter 21M. A word or two of advice: my own 21M has a rather long aperture pin that fouled the two SDM contacts just inside the camera's lens mount when screwing the lens into position - the result being that it deeply scratched those contacts on my old K-5 and bent the aperture pin on the lens. I don't know if Nikon has anything like those contacts, but either way I recommend fitting the M42 adapter to the lens first, then mounting that to the camera. Also, some M42 adapters aren't very precisely machined, and can produce tiny bits of debris when a lens is screwed into position - so again I prefer to fit the lens to the adapter first, then use a blower to ensure the rear of the lens and mount is debris-free, before mounting.

Let us know how you get on

Thank you mike for tips. I have already in my mind. The first thing i want to do is isolate the pin of the lens in order to keep or check at least if it is dangerous for the interior of the camera.

Καλημέρα!!!

Very nice! I haven't ever used a Pentax camera but I would like to have a chance sometime. How is life in Astoria? It will surely be better from here, where Iam....

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

Would it be ok if I post some pictures of my soviet lenses in the forums of soviet lenses reviews? I'm asking because here is a Pentax forum and I'm a nikon owner. Please be gentle.

Panos, that's fine. Many of us use additional or other camera brands. The Pentax-specific threads - for K-1 and K-3 photos, for instance - should be kept for the relevant cameras only, but you're welcome to post photos in non-model-specific areas. Just mention what camera and lens you've used
