Hello!

Just registered and thought I should introduce myself. My interest in Pentax is in using the older Pentax lenses on different cameras via adapters. So, I am not a Pentax shooter per se. Having said that, I find this forum very good.

Cheers, Jack

Welcome, Bonjac! There are a lot of us here who enjoy using the older equipment too. Some of us, at least, use the Pentax newer equipment and also older lenses on the K-1 and via adapter on other brands.

Thank you to all -- I feel like one of the group. I inherited some older Pentax lenses and they are fantastic. I am mounting them on a SONY a99 with adapters that have a confirmation chip. That chip makes it possible to take advantage of the image stabilization of the A99. Love it.
