Hello from California

Hello everyone. Finally joined the forum after years of lurking and reading the gear reviews.

Got a new-to-me 645Z and D FA 55/2.8 this week and love the initial images. I have also been shooting with legacy Pentax lenses adapted to Canon and Sony bodies for the last 13 years. I also own the 50/1.2 and 31/1.8. However, my favorite lens is a $18 copy of SMC Takumar 55/1.8. This lens produced lovely and unique portraits that I haven't been able to replicate with the numerous 50mm lenses I've own over the years.
