Hello! =^)

Hello everyone. I'm a complete newbie to photography and after owning an awful P&S for several years and then using a friend's DSLR (and finding it to be an absolute blast to use and play with), I decided to make the jump, and I don't think I'll ever use a P&S again.

I initially was going to buy a Canon but then started doing more research and found Pentax, and was quickly sold (with A LOT of help from this website ). I ended up buying both a K10D and a K100D Super because I had no idea which one I'd like better, but after using both for a few sessions I'm finding that I greatly prefer the K10D.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here and thank you to all of you that provide the great information found on this site. It has been and I'm sure will continue to be an enormous help for highly inexperienced people like me!

-Jason

Welcome aboard the forum, Jason. Aren't DSLRs great? Why not consider posting pix in the weekly Photo of the Week threads. They don't have to be anything special, just whatever you've been shooting. And if you have some you're particularly proud of there's always Post Your Photos, which has no time frame. Enjoy!

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

Tamia: Yes, DSLRs are AWESOME. It's quite a steep learning curve coming from my old P&S to the K10D, but I'm enjoying it a lot, and even the worst photos from my K10D are far and away better than anything my P&S ever captured. Also, thank you for the suggestions on where to post pictures!

I cut my DSLR teeth on the K10D as well about two and a half years ago. A great camera to learn from. If you have any questions on lenses or other stuff feel free to ask.
