finally back to slr's - joined the pentax family

I just got back into the slr world. I used to own and shoot with a Minolta x-700 and had several lens to go with it.
Well time has marched on and it is hard to find film much less a place to process it so I took the plunge for a DSLR.
I looked for several weeks at canon, nikon, sony, and olympus. Pentax was not even on my radar. I went to a local outdoor laser show where I live and met a couple from Australia. They were shooting a K-x and said that they loved it. They said that they had researched for months and picked the Pentax. I got to play with it some and liked the feel and weight so I looked at what Pentax had to offer.
Discovered the K-r and the better features and got a great price for a kit with the 18-55 DAL lens and the 50-200 DAL lens as well.
I look forward to relearning how to use a slr and now I can learn about RAW images and processing.

Influenced by an Aussie. Awesome.
I'm sure you'll find the K-r very capable.
Enjoy the forum.
