Newbie based in Suffolk

Good Evening to you all,

Greetings from Suffolk!

I've just registered having recently bought my first Pentax (my 1st DSLR). I don't know whether you will agree but I was lucky enough to buy a brand new (ex demo) K100D with DA 18-55 3.5-5.6 AL just a week ago for 199.

I spent over a month researching DSLR's unitl my eyes went square before spotting the advert for the K100D and snapped it up quick. Over the years I owned a variety of cameras including a Kodax instamatic, Olympus Trip35, Canon AV-1, Nikon FG to name but a few. Currently I also have a Panasonic TZ2 and a Kodak Pocket Esign Twenty.

Browsing the Pentax website has impressed me and in particular I've enjoyed reading through the lens reviews as I intend to buy a some older lenses. I'm watching several prime lenses at the moment on Ebay and they seem to sell well. I fancy either a Pentax 100 f2.8 or 135 f3.5 and I'm also considering a 50mm possibly a Ricoh XR f1.7 or a Chinon f1.7 --- I hope if I make any lucky bids I'm buying well.

Greetings Newbie!
I recently joined this group as well.
I'm currently looking for a new K5 w/a 5 year warranty to come back into the Pentax fold.
I used Pentax film cameras starting with the K1000. Wore out 2 ME Supers. I have several beautiful lenses I'm dying to use again.
Hope you have fun with your new Pentaxs and post some pictures from your side of the globe.
