Howdy from a K-x User

Hi everyone,

My first Pentax was given to me by my uncle in 1994...a K-1000 with 50mm lens. It allowed me to understand the balance of Shutter Speed and Aperture. I saved up for a year to by a 28-200 Tokina lens (w/ Macro). I've been using that ever since. With the prices of DSLRs becoming more affordable, I scouted around for a DSLR last year and decided on a K-x--a whole lot of cool features (including Live View) with a 18-55mm lens, backward compatible to K-mount lenses (like my Tokina)...all for under $600! I got it January early this year and am enjoying all the features and great pics since.

I'll post some of the pics here.

A Kx is quite a steal these days. Welcome to the forums.
