Greetings from Vancouver, B.C.

Hello all,

I have a new K10D on the way and thought I'd start by joining the community.

I've used a few systems over the past few years, moving from Canon (10D, 20D, and 1D), to Nikon (D200), and now to Pentax. The D200 was a great camera, but the lack of in-body stabilization had become an issue, plus I just wanted a change. A friend lent me a K10D, and I was hooked. The price was right too!

I also shoot film, mainly 35mm rangefinders, but also formats ranging from half-frame to 4x5, usually black and white.

So, I'm starting with a fairly small Pentax system (just the K10D, 50/2.8 macro, and a handful of Carl Zeiss Jena MF lenses that I'd been using on the Canons), but I'm hoping to build slowly over the next little bit.

Hi Alec

We're Pacific NW neighbors just down the coast from you. Love going up to your city and of course over to Victoria. Welcome to the forum.

Great city. We love Stanley Park. But I have to admit that we love the island better... and in particular, Victoria and Nanaimo.
