Hello from Poland

Hello here!
My name is Marek, I'am from Poland. Not proffesional, just amateur and photo lover. I was nikon guy since many years, but actually I changed stuff to Pentax. Why? Cause I love old lenses (M42 for example) and Pentax is so flexible that would be the sin not to use it Nikon is nikon stuff only to be honest. And Pentax is also good for himself, not only for its flexible

So since few days I'am owner of Pentax K-3II with Sigma 16-50 (f2,8) lens and few old, russian lenses M42. Not to much to show now, we are on the way to know each other (mean me and K-3II ) Of course used stuff (as amateur I don't have ability to spent milions of coins for camera) but benefit is that body and lens are good friends and no problem with fitting each other.

So hi to all and lets play

Hi Marek, and welcome to Pentax Forums.
You’ll find plenty of like-minded people here, who love to get the most from their older lenses. Enjoy your time here and post some photos when you’re ready.

Greetings Marek, and welcome to Pentax Forums from Germany! Congrats on your new gear and on embarking on the fascinating road that is lens collecting. There are quite a few collectors here on the forums, although they may not refer to themselves as such.

Thank you very much for warm welcome Very noble company, I see I read forum's topics from some time and really like this place. My K-3 was to be only for old lenses experiments, but when I got it to my hand it become my main system. Probably it is how its magic works
