Hi Gaven and everyone here at the fourm, I'm new here too
I have a Q7 and 3 of the initial 6 lenses. Had a Q model for a short time before the Q7
I go back to having a Spotmatic II with Super-Takumar 50mm 1.4 which I still own. I've been through a large collection of the old Pentax M42 screw mount lenses as well as old Fuji and Chinon cameras with Pentax mounts. Sorry to say my family has had almost every brand camera at some point. I've used both Pentax and Yashica medium format when younger because my mom owned both as well as Pentax and Nikon 35mm cameras in the 60-90's. Have had Ricoh point & shoots both digital and film. Myself I still have 5 varied 35mm cameras and 20+ lenses. So far I have adapters to use all but a few on the Q7. I've encountered issues with some fitting the adapters without alterations. I've recently gotten some chipped adapters to use old Yashica and Pentax lenses on my newer Canon DSLR.
I had lurked here more than once many times before I joined some 8-10 years ago under another used name and email. Today starts a new era for me here.
Thanks for all the great info everyone and welcome Gavin.
Sincerely Dave
