Pentax user since 1981...

...when the four thirds format was called 110 film, and the SLR was the Pentax Auto 110. I still have the camera and 4 lenses - did you know that the 20-40mm f/2.8 zoom is actually f/2.0 when not on the 110? Yes, I have adapters.

Last month I bought two ZX-M cameras and I just got the prints back today from my first roll. They seem to do just fine with my K mount lenses that I've been using on micro four thirds. Also today I bought a Q10 and adapter to use with some miscellaneous C mount lenses I've been collecting since day one. Should be fun.

Yay, another film shooter! Welcome! And keep it up - they'll only keep making and developing it if we keep buying it.

Hello and welcome to the forums - glad you could join us.

The Q-series cameras have quite a following here, and a few of us - myself included - like to play with C-mount lenses. Interested to hear about (and perhaps see) your results
