Dear Fellow Pentaxians

I started with Pentax P30T. Manual focus, simple and most of all it worked! Then you buy a second lens, then another... well you soon get hooked on to your Pentax.

Then when digital started I and prices for film SLRs dropped I got an *ist. Lightweight, highly practical. But contrary to the P30T - which made me fall in love with Pentax - the *ist broke down like canon cameras.

In those early days of digital photography, Pentax was not really at the leading edge, so I succumbed to the temptation of getting a Nikon, a E2100. It had nice features and a very good 2Mpx sensor but the optics did not match anything I had experienced with Pentax. So then I got an SVi. Not a popular point and shoot camera from Pentax, but what an improvement over the Nikon!

Now I mostly shoot with my K10D and various lenses. Last addition is a Pentax 100mm macro... a must in every Pentaxian's collection.
