Firstly, I should admit I've never owned a Pentax camera.
My 'film' days were with a Nikon FG. I went digital (2 decades ago) with a Sigma SD14, and recently have upgraded to a Fujifilm X-H1.

With the digital era I have had a few Pentax M42 lenses.
Current M42's I have are: Pentacon 30mm F3.5, Pentax SMC Takumar 50mm F1.8 (this is a great lens), and a Takumar 135mm F3.5.
There's something magical about the look of old glass on a new camera.

I have lurked here for a long time, but not registered.

Welcome from Mosquito Creek. You have some nice old glass there. I have quite a few old lenses myself, including the Myer-Optik Görlitz "Lydith" 30mm f3.5 - which is the Pentacon with a fancy name. Very nice lens.
