Hello from Oregon

I do have a couple of 35mm Pentax's and they likely will be sold as I am compacting my 35mm cameras, but this is a great place to find thorough third party lenses. I have recently bought a couple of Leica SLR bodies because I used them in the distant past and they were really inexpensive. A Leicaflex SL and a Leica R4. The lenses are another matter and our budget doesn't allow for Leica lenses but the Tamron Adaptall lens do. The difficult - and expensive - part are the Adaptall 2 lens mount adapters. If any of you can sterr me to any I would be grateful. I did find on from Camera Traders in Victoria BC for a very low price of $12 plus shipping!
Thanks for welcoming me to this forum.

Actually I began to use Leitz optics in 1969 with my M4 & an M2R. I stopped with them in 2005 or so because my hands and thumbs were so bad and were destined for surgeries. I sold what I had then. I also owned IIIf red dials in my film past. Leitz optics are very much out of our budget now , although I did buy a Vario Elmar 35-70 f3.5

I lived in NYC in the 1970s and Olden Camera - among others - was where I would haunt for hours

Fossil is an interesting place - especially for photo ops.
