Hello From Nottingham

Hi All

I've just joined the forum

I joined the forum as I have two vintage SLR lenses an SMC M 50mm f1.7 and SMC M 28mm f3.5 that I attach to my Sony A6000 mirrorless DSLR.

My first ever digital camera was a Pentax Optio 500 . I still have it, it took great pictures

Regards

Phil

Welcome, Phil - nice to have you with us

You do realise, having joined these forums, you'll end up with more Pentax glass for your A6000? You might not know it yet... but it will happen. We have ways...

I used to ride my bike that way to the locks and paths. I was on Kingfisher Close, a dead end across station road. Loved watching the foxes run on the tracks. I was there in 2005, might have seen each other. Perhaps we both bought McVities at that little shop.

Welcome Phil!

My family are from Nottinghamshire, and I have spent a great deal of time at the City Ground as it is probably my favorite place on earth. I'm from Derby but will deny it if ever asked.

They aren't kidding above in this thread, they will have you dreaming of Pentax without realizing you are doing it in no time if you stick around these forums. But, it'll be some of the nicest people you'll ever meet that brainwash you

Cheers!
