Hello everyone. My name is Leo and I am just starting to get back into photography. In an other century I use to take thousands of 35mm photos (mostly B&W). I use to do my own developing in my own lab but after the kids came and all my moving (was in the Army), I had to scale back. I still took a lot of photos but not what I was use to. When the digital cameras came out I bought a point and shoot and after several others I was never happy with the capabilities of the point and shoot cameras. I just got my new K-r and I am really looking forward to getting back into photography. My photography interests are grandkids, nature, and landscapes. I am looking forward to learning all I can from you guys and hope to meet some local folks.

Welcome Leo, and a nice intro.
The K-r should give you a lot more feeling of genuine SLR photography and inspire you to keep shooting.

You are in exactly the same situation as me, two months ago. The guys on here are great: very knowledgable and helpful.

You won't be dissapointed.
