Greetings from New Zealand

Hi all,
Been meaning to post for a while. I come from the converted to manual focus and Takumars in particular photo buffs. I have always been a Minolta man but one Takumar and an m42 and I was hooked. Now 6 months and 13 Takumars later I think I may have a problem. 'lol' "Just one more" 13 is such an unlucky number. 'lol'

Were you the lucky Pentax person in Gisborne who picked up the kit of Takumars on 'Trade Me' two or three weeks ago? I saw that bundle and wished I was near by...

I must be a glutton for punishment, all of my limited edition prints are in series of 13.

Yes I was lucky enough to score the Takumars on T.M. I'm also a Holden Senator V.P. 5 speed manual owner. It's not a very common car as they only built 19 in Aus and 4 came to N.Z, One was wrecked. Tom Walkinshaw was involved in the design of the car. "He sure knew what he was doing"!!
