joy of manual lenses

i bought a pentax K-M last year and have recently discovered that manual lenses work with pentax digital slr cameras. i have purchased a few from e-bay, my favourite being a 55mm f1.8.

The 55/1.8 is a great little lens. Welcome to the forums.

I am glad you found the joy of using manual focus lens... especially the catch-in-focus feature.
