New Pentaxian from Southeast Kansas

Hello everyone. I have recently become a Pentaxian with the purchase of my K10D. So far, I love it. The more I use it the more I respect it. I am not new to photography though. Over the last 25 years I have owned or still own a Minolta SRT-MCII, SRT-100, X700, an Olympus OM-PC, Nikon N80 and Nikon D50. I sold my D50 to finance my K10D. It took me over 8 months to decide to switch from Nikon to Pentax. (I still shoot the N80 so I kept most of my Nikon Lenses). The people that post to this site helped push me over the edge in my choice to go with Pentax. I do apprieciate the professionalism of everyone here.

Welcome aboard Charlie. By the way, you have a very good resource in your back yard. MPIX.COM is located in Pittsburg, KS and they do a very nice job on prints. As close as you are, you might be able to pick them up in person.
