Hello from Hamburg, Germany

Hello guys! I'm from New Zealand but currently living in Hamburg, Germany.

P.S. I'm a Fujifilm user but have recently explored the wonders of vintage lenses which lead me to this forums and my secondary camera (Pentax K-5).

Arsenal:

Fuji Gear
Fujifilm X-Pro2 Graphite Edition / X-E2 (Spare)
XF 16mm f1.4 R WR
XF 35mm f2 R WR
Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f0.95
XF 90mm f2 R WR


Pentax Gear:
Pentax K-5
Pentax P30n
Exakta HS-40

Rikenon P 50mm 1.7
Super Takumar 55mm f1.8
Tamron Adaptall-2 (PL) 28mm f2.5
SMC Pentax-DA 18-55mm AL WR
Pentax-A 28-70mm

Cheers!
Tristan

Thanks @Chris_K!

Anyway, I just thought I'd share my agenda here aside from getting info about vintage lenses:
1. I'll be testing all the vintage lenses that I own and will acquire.
2. I can compare the performance between Pentax and Fuji (adapted).
3. and whatever may come up going forward.

Here's a quick snapshot of my gear comparing them side by side. At first, I was quite surprised how small the Pentax K-5 is! What's the purpose of having mirrorless cameras again?! haha

It works! So basically the size difference is negligible which was my point.

Many members here own multiple brands of cameras. You can't have too many tools in your toolbox! I shot Fuji and Ilford film in my film days. My main camera now is a K-5IIs.
Welcome to the forum.
