Hey all, I've found myself coming to this forum more and more as Pentax has some high quality lenses at low cost on the second hand market.

I started looking about two weeks ago where my dad had an old Pentax camera (unsure on model) and the Pentax A 28-80mm F3.5-F4.5. I currently have a Sony a6000 (MILC) and have used an adapter PK-NEX mount. The pictures and bokeh are amazing and I'm loving the lens!

Today I just brought a telephoto zoom Sirius 80-200mm f3.9 and it's an amazing zoom. Can't wait to test this lens out.

Looking forward to learning more and finding some more great gems. Many thanks to everyone for setting up this amazing detailed website, I've found it very useful.

Thanks all, Matt.
