Hi all from queensland Australia

Hi all,

Here to introduce myself. Am an enthusiast looking to further develop my skills with camera in hand. Haven't owned a film camera since the 80's and recall it was a Yashica, model unknown

I firstly want to point out that I do not own a Pentax Camera, instead I have an Olympus OMD E-M1, with 3 or 4 lenses.

But.......I have read these pages with some fabulous reviews and thoughts on some Pentax lenses, particularly the SMC series.

I'm now looking at a few lenses I can adapt to my camera with of course a suitable adapter.

I am trying to decide between the K Pentax SMC 28mm f3.5 or the SMC 30mm f2.8. Hope to contribute down the track, but will read up and take the plunge on one or the other.

Chris

Hi from a fellow Queenslander, Chris. There are quite a few of us scattered around the south east corner of Queensland - and a sizeable Aussie contingent. Enjoy those Pentax lenses. Anything you need to know I am sure you can find it here.

Thanks all for the welcome.

Purchased my first Pentax in the SMC 30mm f2.8 K mount, and an adapter to suit.

Now have my eyes on an Asahi Pentax Super-Takumar 55 mm F/1.8, which will require a M42 adapter.

Will post pics in appropriate forums when I have them in hand.

Do most of you guys here still use film? Or are there a smattering of digital converts like me?

Welcome here mate. Another Queenslander here. Lots of good company on the forum.
Also good to see an avid Super Tak user. No more film for me - no time for it, leave alone for photography nowadays. But Pentax caters for all. Enjoy the forum.

Haven't shot film since the 80's
