Hello from the Mid-South (US)

I recently bought the Pentax *istD off ebay and am really enjoying this camera! I've
owned and used various DSLRs from Nikon, Canon, Olympus, but having focus
confirm with all my M42 lenses is very nice! I have SMC and Super Takumars, and
other M42 lenses: Russian, German, and Japanese. I mistakenly bought a flanged
M42 adapter (before the camera even arrived) and found this place when I did a
Google. I should have the OEM Pentax adapter in a few days, can't wait! Luckily I
have a few K-mounts to use until it arrives.

Looking forward to learning from you and sharing experiences!

Regards,

Bill

Welcome Bill. I assume you will be posting plenty of pictures soon with all those lenses lying around.

Hope to, Gary! I should warn you though, you might want to buy a big bottle of
Visine when I do! Thanks for the welcome!

Welcome, Bill. I grew up in Alabama (a bit south and east of you) but I've been up your way a good bit and I know you live in a beautiful place. Please be sure to share some pictures!

Welcome Bill. I did some shooting many years ago a little east of you at a water fall near Ft. Payne. If I remember correctly, it's actually called Little River Falls.
