New from Tamworth

Hi all. I'm new to this game of forums but have been into video & photograph for ages.
Decades ago I owned various K mount cameras from Ricoh & Chinon but then with family had to sell them to keep the wife happy with a point & shoot. Finally now after having a Fuji bridge camera I've got a Pentax K50 & am using some old manual K lenses.
Hope in time to put some images on the site to keep you lot happy.

Hi all & thanks for your comments.
Just to let you know apart from the lovely K50 I also have the 18-55 kit lens plus:
Takumar 135mm f.25, Sun 35mm f2.5 Pentax -m 1f.7 Bell & Howell 70-150 f3.8 zoom Makinon 500mm mirror plus a Prinzflex converter kit. This kit has extension tube, 35mm adaptor, 2x converter.
I also use these lens with the Sony NEX FS700 camcorder with the E mount to K adaptor.
I hope to post some images soon when I get the hang of how to do it. In the meantime I'll start exploring the great forum & see what others have been doing.
