Good Morning. I've been a lurker here for a while and finally decided to join up. There seems to be a lot of good info on this site.

I shot 35mm for years with an ME Super (loved that camera), and last Christmas my wife surprised me with the K100D/ 18-55mm zoom kit. I love the fact I can use all my old lenses and such. I recently picked up the 50-200mm zoom and would like to get the P-FA 1.4 50mm standard lens to round out my kit. Eventually, I may also get the AF-360FGZ flash, but that's low on the totem pole right now as I mostly prefer nature photography and landscapes. I've become a shooting fool with this camera. Hey, it's only electrons.
The camera takes great pictures, my only complaint is how Pentax wiggled out of giving me my $50 rebate.

I've been shooting for almost 25 years, including developing and printing my own black & whites. Two of my latest prints took a first and second place recently in a local photography contest.

Greetings from a fellow Virginian (Gainesville). I am also a newbie here on this forum. Bought my K100D Labor Day weekend and I have been spending a lot of time reading about it and playing around with it. I'm happy so far.

And like you, Pentax is trying to screw me out the $50. They claim I never sent in the UPC, while in fact, I stapled it to the rebate form. It's a p*issing contest at the moment, but I don't think I will get the $50. Bummer.
