Hello from Columbus, OH

New to the forum, but not new to Pentax.
My first SLR was a Pentax ME Super SE that I purchased new in the early 80's. I liked it so much I later bought a second one for my backup camera. My original lenses were a Tamron 28-70mm 1:3.5-4.5 Macro, a Tokina 70-210mm 1:4-5.6, an smc Pentax 300mm 1:4 , and a Kiron MC7 2X Teleconverter.
I got away from shooting for a while, but got back into it in early 2008 when I bought my first digital SLR. It was, of course, a Pentax K10D. The lenses that I have been using with it are the Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL WR and the smc Pentax DA 55-300mm f/4-5.8 ED.
I recently, as in just last week, upgraded to the Pentax K-5 and, because of the really good reviews that I read in the Pentax Forums, had to splurge and also get the smcP DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited. So far, I have to agree, what a great little lens.
