Hallo from Italy

Good morning to all, I'm a new member of this community. I'm also quite old and not very good with computers but much better with a camera in my hands. I started in 1952 with an Italian camera called Ferrania Galileo, model Condor II single collapsible lens 50mm f:2.0. At that time, imports from Japan were closed, years later, I bought a second hand Pentax from the son of the American Consul General in Rome, don't remember what model but it was a Reflex!!! and came with a 40 or 50mm f:2,8 while my Father was sporting a Leica IIIf with a 3,5 lens, I was so proud of it and was able to obtain good shots and did my own developing and B&W printing at night.
In my life I went through many cameras made in Germany and Japan. Some of them are still with me. One of my favorites is the K20D-70mm f:2,4 that I bought after reading Sean Reid review site.
Too many words to say hallo.
All my best
Pietro from Rome
