Hello from NY!

Joined a little ways back but figure I ought to get crackin' on posts.

Bought a K-x a year ago after a lot of research and a lot of pining for a DSLR. It was my second trip to China and I regretted not getting anything better than a point and shoot. As a result, I had a lot of cool stuff to learn how to use the camera on! Pentax primes were a bit cheaper over there than here so I started getting into those a bit too (with the help of the lens reviews on here).

I went Pentax mostly because it seemed to be the best price/performance option out there (the K-x was a STEAL when Bing Cashback was still around....) Didn't realize I was going odd brand out until I really started reading these forums. Oddly enough, I am also a Zune user... go figure. That being said, I definitely have no regrets. What other brand could offer me a camera Imperial Storm Troopers would take on holiday (went white)?

Hopefully Pentax isn't an odd brand for much longer (now that Ricoh is taking over). They used to be THE film camera maker!

Welcome and good to have you here.
Enjoy your photography, first and foremost! Camera, and brand, comes further down the priority list.

Hi Adam,

Same concerns here too. I wonder whether Ricoh will redirect Pentax's efforts to further develop the Q-mount.
