Hello from Holland Netherlands Europe

Hello there!

I am an old chap, just retiring, and spending some more time with my vintage lenses.
Early 2016 I joined 500px dot com username vintagelenses, and also on NatGeo profilenumer 1291927 - I hope I am not spamming by mentioning this.

My camera is a Fuji X-T1 with a permament Zhongyi Turbo II on it as to emulate a fullframe camera that I mainly use for short range landscape photography. I am using all my lenses with this configuration. My backup camera is a 10 years old Canon 40D that I mainly use for sports (martial arts) shooting.

My list of vintage lenses changes all the time. They tend to fail, break, walk away on ebay, or stay forgotten.

Okayeee, welcome to me yeah! And nice meeting you yeah!

Wishing you all happy 2017 new year!


IQNYTE aka George Philip Birney

Hi from Australia George. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Many members here use other than Pentax equipment, so all is good. Hope to see some of your photographs soon. Good to have you here.

Hello, George, and welcome aboard - glad you could join us.

There are quite a number of us here shooting more than one system, and some that don't shoot Pentax at all, so you're in good company.

Looking forward to your involvement here, and wishing you a Happy New Year

Oh how nice of you all for welcoming me so wonderfully! I must admit I never had a Pentax, but I love them all the same. I have seen many photos shot by Pentax cameras and Pentax lenses and I am most impressed. Main reason why I use a Fuji X-T1 is because it reminds me so much to a vintage camera, you know, all those knobs. It can take up Pentax lenses too, so later on I might try some of these goodies as well.

Well anyway, I need to explore a bit this site and soon I will be uploading some photos to show off some old chap's dreams (nightmares ;-).
