Greetings from England

I thought I should head down here and say hello after just joining the forum.

I've just picked up a Spotmatic SP and quickly followed it with another - these are my first Pentax cameras and I love them already...I got an M42 lens with some other stuff recently and didn't have a suitable body so I did a bit of reading and the Spotmatic seemed like a popular choice.

I now have four M42 lenses and I have my eye on a whole load more...

Film is my passion but I also do digital on a small scale (Can*n P&S) and I am considering a digital SLR when funds (and reality) allow.

Anyway, I'm sure I have a whole heap of reading to do here so I'll sign off.

Thanks fractal.

I have a Super Takumar 55 F2, Industar 50-2 pancake, Vivitar 135 F2.8 and Helios 44M.

I missed out on a Pentacon 200 recently but I'll keep searching...!

Thanks for the welcome.

I have just been denied access to the Spotmatic Yahoo group - any ideas why that would be...?
I already subscribe to various other Yahoo interest groups...
