Hi Everyone - New k10 owner

Hi everyone here at the forums..

I just got my K10 last weekend. I live on the coast/shore in New Jersey.

Definately a newbie to DSLs as I am upgrading from a 8 year old or so 3.2 megapixel camera that literally feels and is the shape of a brick. I figure when cellphones have the same phone as my main camera I seriouslly needed to upgrade.

Just wanted to thank everyone for all the great info on the forums as it helped in my decision.

Currently just adding a lense or two in order to round out my begining collection.

Have the kit lense, the 50mm FA 1.4 (amazad at the quality for the price) and have the 80-320mm on the way hoping it will satisfy the need to zoom/long range stuff, as the reach of the kit lense is pretty limited.

I'm sure you'll see me posting around on the forums. Have a nice night.

Welcome to the forum. My wife and I received our k10d's about three weeks ago as well. We've held off on acquiring any other lenses for the time being... waiting on the 18-250mm Pentax to make an appearance. All the best.

Welcome aboard! I have had my K10D about a year and I have been surprised of the quality and workmanship of the camera. Few months ago I was in Norway in a two weeks hiking trip and as you quess the handling of the camera was not light ... the camera survived few falls in the mountains (it was in the backpack) etc.

Good choice! I wish you a lot of funny moments with your new Pentax.
