Hi from the UK

Hi all, I have quite a few manual lenses of my own so I've registered here to give something back, after benefitting from the reviews here for quite a while. M42, PK and MD mounts to name a few types. Have found the older lenses in general to have quite superior glass to the newer lenses, and can be had for great prices. Not worried about autofocus, etc, so it's working nicely for me.

Welcome from Chicago!

As long as you remember to put a hood on those old lenses, they're great. At least a lot of them are...

Cheers all. Yeah some need hoods. I'm starting to take a shine to 135mm lenses with built in hoods. Just wish some decent 50mm lenses had something built in.
