Hello Everyone:

Just introducing myself as an avid hobby photographer.
For a couple of years now I have been using only my Nikon D80 but have become also a very interested in the old manual focus lenses and in particular M42 lenses, such as the Takumars. I have taken the plunge and invested in a K10D which has not even arrived yet and will learn with great interest some of the wisdom contained in "".
Many thanks for inviting me into your community.

Welcome to the forum Steve.
I'm sure you'll enjoy using the K10D.
You'd do well to go through the articles section and read up on using M42 lenses on the K10D.
Look forward to your contributions here.

Welcome!...and checkout the "Takumar Club" thread when you get a chance. Hopefully we will see a few posts from your new K10d. The site has info on how to use manual glass with digital (a change in a setting is to use manual mode etc).
