Hello pentaxforum members,

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as I am new in this forum. In fact, I have been following your forum for quite a while as a guest already and I am quite impressed of the expertise of many of the users here.

I have been using Pentax based camera equipments since 1986, however then using a Ricoh SLR as well and made photography as a hobby for many years. I was a Pentaxian in my mind since then, however as I used only manual or Av settings on my camera I was quite happy with the equipment I had ...

Two years ago I came back to SLR photography when I purchased Pentax K-x (indeed, my first AF DSLR at all ...). The only things I missed where the focus points (yes, I missed them from the beginning) and a better screen. Therefore, I have now switched to the Pentax K-r and this camera really meets all my needs. I am heavily disappointed with Pentax reaction to the annoying FF issue that I also experience when I am taking pictures inside buildings with artificial light. I still hope that Pentax will solve this pretty soon, as this took quite some of my sympathy for Pentax away ...

I am hoping for good discussions with some of you in the forum. Thanks!
