Hello from Texas

Just recently acquired a Pentax K20. I have had an MX for a couple of decades now with a few Pentax lenses including a 50 1.4, 28 2.8, FA 20-35, and a 35-105. As you can tell I don't do much telephoto work, primarily landscape, nature, architectural, and an occasional wedding for a friend. The K20 has stimulated me to acquire a DA 16-45 and now a Tamron 24-135 (which I got new for $200 and is turning out to be a very nice lens for the money). My wish list now includes a 10-20 or 12-24 and perhaps some of those great primes, especially a Pentax 70 or 105 Macro. Nice to be in the Pentax digital world now. The only thing negative I have noticed is all the smug Nikon and Canon users who look down their nose at Pentax. That is their problem, not mine.

I have been a serious borderline professional for many many years, since the early 70's, using everything from 35 to 8x10 view cameras. I have done a lot of large format black and white a la Ansel Adams. I am amazed at the detailed prints that are possible with the K20. Now I wonder what might be possible with one of the new K5 bodies!
