Hello from Wishaw, near Glasgow, Scotland

Hi guys, just joined the Forum this evening. Been using Pentax K since the early 80s, when I bought myself a Ricoh XR-X film camera, been through a few cameras since then and am now using my first DSLR, a Pentax K-7, love it, would never go back to film now. I'm into mostly landscapes and my dog and cat, starting to get into macro as well. Been buying a few older manual Pentax prime lenses recently, such as the 50mm f1.7 and the 135mm f3.5, both M series, these old lenses still produce some excellent photos, even by todays standards,
Looking forward to seeing your photos and posting a few of my own.
Cheers guys.

Greetings Charlie and welcome to PentaxForums. There are certain joys with using vintage lenses on Pentax DSLRs. I look forward to seeing your photo posts.
