Hi, from a digital convert

Been a bit of a dinosaur til recently, rather attached to my Pentax film SLR's, but at last bought a K7 - and it's heaven (excuse the rhyme). Thought perhaps I needed to keep up to date with things a bit more - so here I am!

Congrats, the K-7 is a great camera. Coming from the K100D and K-r it's a dream to have all the settings available through buttons and switches and not have to navigate through the menus, and the two dials, great!

Welcome to the forum.
The K-7's a great way to get into the digital era, and you'll find all your old K-mounts working as you expect them to on the camera.
Enjoy it here.

I thought at first the K7 might feel too different, but it was an easy transition from my Z1 and MZ6. Compatability of lenses is a big help too.
