    Is this lens compatible "?

    I also have a large collection of Pentax lenses; I've also been using Ricoh/Pentax cameras for decades, so I've both K-Mount and M42's. Since Minolta also makes outstanding ones, not to mention Kiron, Komine and Tokina, I've essentially doubled the number of excellent lenses available to me by...

    Is this lens compatible "?

    The Vivitar lenses of that type were made by either Kiron or Komine, and are excellent. I have several for both my Pentax and Minolta SLR's. I also have the Minolta to Pentax lens converter and, to me, it's worth the money since I have a LOT of excellent Minolta/Rokkor/Tokina lenses which...

    An American Coot and Skunk Cabbage flowers

    Wandered down to Penn State Lake Perez today to see if the ice had melted. It mostly hadn't except for one shallow bay where I found the American Coot feeding by itself. Only the second time I'd ever seen one; weird looking bird. I can see why they call some folks crazy ol' coots. Walking along...

    Test roll from my Konica C35 EF, Andy Warhol's favorite camera because it was the first compact camera to incorporate a built-in flash(see pic). Extremely fast and simple zone focus; once you're past 15 feet just leave it on infinity. Great lens though. I just drove into town and did some...

    A River Runs Through It

    While not shot in Montana, but in Central Pennsylvania, when I looked at the photo, images from that great movie came to mind. This was shot with the Pentax K3iii using the SATOBI custom image the new firmware download provided.

    Winter Bison

    Buried deep in the woods way back into the Allegheny Mountain plateau is a family that maintains a Bison ranch. Drove by yesterday and stopped to take a couple of photos. It had rained heavily, so the feedlot next to the barn was a muddy mess.

    It's cold out there...

    Really nice shot of the Cardinal. I'm lucky in that I've a Cardinal couple that hangs around my feeder. I've a bunch of photos of each, but that shot of yours is exceptionally nice.

    Minolta X-700 Technical Question

    I had capacitor problems with my otherwise mint looking X-370, so I sent it to Garry's. Fixed/cla'd it and it works fine. I've also sent him two other minoltas(XE-7 with a stuck frame counter and a SRT-201 for CLA) and he did a great job on those two also. For an X-700, he fixes the problem...
