Hello hello, new user inbound!

Hi, Pentax Forums!

A few months ago, I was introduced to my parents' old Minolta film SLR camera, and while the unit itself was busted, the lens seemed in working condition. Upon some further inspection, I was able to find some information about the lens and how to mount old lenses to my also recently-acquired Canon M50, thanks to the help of these forums. I've been passively interested in photography for a while, and while I may not have any Pentax cameras, I do now have a working Fujica ST605N and a few additional lenses, vetted and reviewed thanks to the help of this forum. The work and cataloging you all do here is highly appreciated, and I hope to return the favor in some way.

So thank you all, and have a lovely rest of your week, wherever you may be!

Yeah, this forum has helped me out with all of my photography-related questions. Everyone is pretty nice and helpful!
I got started on this forum asking questions about my K1000 and what digital cameras I could use its lenses on. Now I've got a K-5 and some nice lenses to go with it.

Have fun with your Fujica!

I grew up using my Dad's fully-manual Minolta back in the early 80s for school newsletters and yearbook photos. It was so simple back then! A few years back I researched his lenses. Dad didn't buy cheap glass. He bought an adapter to his Sony Alpha, but I don't know how much he uses that old glass.
