New in town...

Hi All,

An introduction is in order. For years I actively collected and used vintage Pentax screwmount cameras and lenses (with a few detours into medium format and other 35mm SLR systems). I no longer shoot film, but I've recently begun using my old Takumars (and some other M42 lenses) on my Pentax DSLR, and I'm very much enjoying reconnecting with my old favorites.

So I'm a bit out of practice, a relative novice with respect to digital, and my old eyes don't seem to focus quite as confidently as they used to. Forgive me in advance, please, for asking questions that have already been addressed; I promise to use the "search" function before making a nuisance of myself.

Nice to be here!

Welcome to the forum. Those of us who have reached 'a certain age' understand the focusing issues.
