Hello from the Biggest little city!

Hey everybody! This is my first post here on the forum even though I've spent a little time lurking. It looks to be a very active community and I look forward to being a part of it and growing my Pentax knowledge!

I signed up after looking into a DSLR and deciding that the K-r was the right choice for me. I am very much in love with this wee beasty, I can really only afford older "M" glass therefore I do not notice the "FF" issues that have been reported.

Since acquiring the K-r I've amassed a little collection of compact pentax SLRs and "M" glass, including 4 nifty fifties. This little hobby is one that I'm enjoying immensely and hope to for years to come!

Welcome! There are some really good M lenses out there so you're not sacrificing IQ at all and this forum is a great place to pick some up. Be sure to take some time and explore as much as you can. Enjoy!

Hi, and welcome to the forum, Bruspeed. It sounds like you have a good start with that K-r and those lenses. I only have three of those old fifties! I'm sure that you'll enjoy both the hobby and the forum.
