Hello, new friend in Italy

Hello, I just joined the club. I hope it's a place where my experience will be useful to other Pentax users, and where I can learn by other's experience, like every club.
Since 1 year I own a digital pentax, I choose to use again the lenses I bought for the old film-bodies. They are 20/4 M, 28/2,8 A, 40/2,8, 50/1,4 A, 100/4 macro, 135/3,5 M, 200/4 A for the MX, SuperA and KX. Also a 50/2,8 Rodagon for enlarger that has woderful performance in macro, I only tested recently but never used in such field.
The digital is the K-S2 with standard 18-50 WR. My dream: I wish to adapt other firms' good lenses (soviet? deutsch?) for portrait and macro, and why not the Pentax 85/2 for film and the 24/2,8A as a wide-angle more usable than the 20mm.
Have good light!

Hi from Australia. You have a good selection of lenses. I enjoy playing with old manual lenses, particularly Zeiss which are not too expensive and easy to get in M42 or Pentacon 6 mount. Post some of your pics for us. You have lots of good subjects in Italy.
