Hello from Scotland

Hi all.

Having now just recently purchased a low shutter count (2270) Pentax K5iis and moving away from Canon and Fuji, I am excited to get out and about with my new purchase. I have already got a couple MZ-30's and a Spotmatic SPii plus a few old manual lenses:

Pentax SMC DA 50mm F/1.8
SMC Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5
Vivitar 28mm F/2.8 wide angle auto
Super Paragon PMC II auto 28mm F/2.8
Rikenon 50mm F/2
SMC Pentax-A 50mm F/2
SMC Pentax-A 50mm F/1.7
Tokina SD 70-210 F/4-5.6
Vivitar 200mm F/3.5
Pentax SMC Takumar 55mm F/1.8
Komura 135mm F/3.5
Pentacon Auto Multi Coating 50mm F/1.8

Needing to get a PK to M42 adapter but going to stick to Pentax's own item.

Once I have gotten used to the layout of the camera I may do a little write up on how I am finding the Pentax K5iis compared to my Canon 60D and Fuji XT1.


Until then I will be asking lots of questions over the next few weeks guys

Thanks, guys

I haven't received the Pentax SMC DA 50mm F/1.8 lens yet, but I am hoping it will do the job for now so I can get out and about with an AF lens.

As an Edinburgher who has been considering jumping on the Pentax bus for a while I'm now not sure if I'd be welcome here!

You do live in a beautiful part of the world though
