Hello from Michigan, USA

Hello All,
My name is Dave and I've been registered here on the Pentax Forums for awhile now, but never really introduced myself.

I'm returning to photography after a 35 year lapse.......raising kids and working a it's time to get serious again. I bought a k-7 over a year ago and was slow in really digging into it's capabilities. Along the way, I grew enamored with a Panosonic DMC GF1 and went off on a 4/3 tangent.

After 6 months playing around with both the K-7 and the GF1, I figured out I was wasting time not really knowing either one fully, so I sold the GF1 and bought a Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 EX DC HSM ELD SLD Aspherical Super Wide Angle Lens for Pentax Digital SLR Cameras for the K-7.

BTW, I got the 10-20 from Adoroma and sold my GF1 thru them......great company.

I also recently got the Pentax DA 40mm f/2.8 Ultra Compact Lens........

I process in Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom............

I am completely sold on the capabilities of the K-7 and will be getting a K-5 for Christmas this year to allow me to use the 40mm as my everyday lens and the 2nd body for all other work......

I hope to be a regular around the forum, so thanks for reading....
