I've Arrived!

Hello,

New to this group but very glad to be here. For years I've always wondered how it would feel to operate a Pentax camera. My main cameras in 35mm days were Minolta and Olympus. Never got around to Pentax until my Fujifilm S5000 quiet a few months ago. Now I am the proud owner of a K10d with a Super-Takumar 50mm 1:14 lens. I've sent the Auto-Takumar 35mm 3.5 to the shop for service recently. The focus ring was very tight moving or turning and there was specks of who knows what on the rear elements.

Regards,
Doug Lee

Hey Doug,

Glad to have you here (I ditched Canon for the K10d)....it's a little older now but is a great camera! Hopefully the 35 turns out OK....mine is tight and needs service to but luckily no specks. I have a few 35s from preset to M ...and it's a great lens... looking forward to a few pics.

Steve
