Hello From St. Louis

Hey guys, new user here from St. Louis. Actually not new at all, but had to deactivate my old account because I didn't need to make any stupid posts for a while. Looking to be a productive member of the community.

Yes I do own a Canon camera. No I don't have any Pentax cameras. Yes I do want a K-5. Can I afford a K-5 at the moment? Nope. I am wanting to go FF in the future and Pentax isn't exactly looking like the best choice. Should I have gone Nikon? Maybe. Only time will tell. But for now I am simply enjoying photography and having a good time.

I wondered where you went.

If you want to borrow a Pentax film body and a lens for a while PM me - Kirkwood pickup

Welcome Raylon.
The K-5 may change your mind, but if it's FF you're after, then for now Pentax won't be for you.
Enjoy the forum though.

Yea all over the news has been all about the eagles in the Alton area. How much longer will the eagles be in the area? Also I have been wanting to do some birding, never really done much. Just got a 300mm lens so I am semiqualfied to finally do some.

Haha yea...I wanted to prevent any more altercations. I asked Adam to simply delete my account. No account means no temptation to post dumb crap. And thanks for the offer, good to know you are in the area.

Hard to say,Ray alots contignent on weather up north, probably well into march for eagles, overall numbers havnt been as good as recent past, not sure why.
for me(not unpatriotic) but, eagles, schmeagles, Im after the trumpeter swans
(thats what mag's cover shot is too) huge variety of birds,especially during migration...staggering. 300mm plenty good, warm clothes on the other hand, wanna "stack".
Monochrome's mentioned being up there before.
