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 "Pentaxforums.com".
Many thanks for inviting me into your community.
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 required...how to use manual mode etc).
