Hi all! New to Photography and loving it!

Hi fellow pentaxians, I'v just this year started getting into photography. It started when I saw an old spotmatic for sale at a second hand shop and thought it looked so beautiful i bought it on the spot. It was brilliant for learning the basics of aperture shutter speed and focussing and i have taken some shots that i am really happy with but as i learnt more i wanted the ability to be able to review exactly what i was doing straight away. My father has been a pentax shooter for about a year or two and advised me to get a K-x to start out with and so i did! loving the pentax system and hoping to learn as much as i can from all of you and help where i can.

Welcome. I hope you know that you can use the lenses from your spotmatic on your k-x with an adapter. Make sure to check out the sticky at the top of the beginners forum about m42 and manual lenses.
