Hello from a new Pentax owner

Hello, been lurking the forums for awhile now as I have been searching for a camera to get for me and my wife. Finally decided to post and introduce myself since our new green K-x should be arriving tomorrow. I'll probably have lots of questions since this is our first DSLR but I am very interested in learning and the community here seems very nice.

Congratulations on your new purchase, I havent personally dealt with the k-x but between handling my k20 and other digital brands, I have found pentax systems to be a bit easier to learn. But Im sure this place will provide a bunch of info on just about anything ya need.

Welcome to the forums.

There is a "Beginner's Corner" sub-forum that addresses a few of the common "how do I...?" questions that might pop up. Of course skimming the manual does not hurt (before going out, and then a couple weeks later after you have some experience with the camera).
