Hello, just signed up.

Hi all,

Long time Pentax user, new to the forum. Have a pile of original 645 gear that I am getting out again and trying to use. Currently have a K50 for general use and want to try using some of my 645 glass on it. Any problems with this?

Well, I picked up an adapter from the marketplace (thanks Mike!) and quickly took a few test shots today using my K30 with the bad motor. Handheld, 645A, 120mm Macro, F8, 1/80, ISO100. I think I am going to have a bunch of fun with this old glass!
