Howdy from Utah

Hi, I am a Utah, US transplant. Grew up in Missouri and have since moved to Utah and I am loving the change.

I come from a Canon Eos 1v and 3 with a large asortment of L lenses. When the digital resolution finally caught up with 35mm slides and everybody was balking at me for being a film holdout I sold it all and invested into a Mamiya 7 rangefinder (6x7 format). That shut them up, I had a lighter camera system than they did and brought back huge optically amazing images. When that got too expensive I did a lot of research into the dslrs again and bought the K7 when it came out. I had to have the pentax 15mm, 43mm, and 77mm lenses. Now when I am standing alongside a Canikon user they still laugh at more for shooting Pentax. I don't care I have a smaller, lighter, and optically amazing system.

Get used to that attidude, until they see what your "lowly" Pentax can do over theirs. You made the right choice. And welcome.
