    Un français sur Pentaxforum?

    J'ai vu que sur le fil "zeiss jena prakticar" tu dis qu'il est assez facile de modifier une monture Prakticar ou une monture Contax/Yashica en monture K
    Si le jeu n'en vaut sans doutes pas la chandelle pour les objectifs de base (qu'on trouve en M42), ça peut etre intéressant si on rencontre un zeiss ...
    As-tu fais un tuto?
    Ou bien y en a-t-il un quelque part?
    ça peut servir...

    Many thanks John, I tried to leave a message with my "like" but messed up. What I wanted to say was that you're in a good position with your K-5; you'll be able (hopefully) to go straight to a reasonably priced FF camera when your K-5 expires, and use all those wonderful film-era lenses as designed. I was hoping my K20D would last another year or so....I had the Sony A& in my hands...what a temptation that is, but overall the K-3 should be great for a long time!! How are you finding the Auto-Takumar 55s and that beautiful Super-Takumar 50? Simon

    Thanks Jean, I have read a lot about it recently, and with your confirmation i think i will go ahead with it. I would like the FA 31mm, but, will have to save a few $'s for that, over time.

    Hello Jean, beachgardener here, May i ask you how do you get on with your DA 35/2.4 plastic mount lens? Do you find it ok/sharp/colour etc? I am thinking of buying one here, they are cheap, as i only have 50mm lenses, i think the 35mm lens range the crop factor will give is suitable for many situations.
    Thank you. Regards Ken.
