Well, not exactly new---

---as some weeks have passed since I registered, but now I have decided that it is about time that i introduced myself. I have been an amateur photographer since the late seventies, first with a Fujica ST650 and some good, some not so good screwmount lenses. after some years I moved on to Nikon, an I still own a Nikomat, FE, FE2 and FG20 and some nikkor lenses. Of course, when I started thinking of going digital, the only brand I looked at was Nikon. But just an hour after having almost closed a deal involving a second-hand D70, I happened to drop by at the local "camera store" (actually a cellphone store with a few cameras on display) and discovered a Pentax K100D priced at exactly the same bundle of NOK as the second-hand Nikon. Some fiddling with buttons and menus later, the nice lady behind the counter had one Pentax less on her shelve. As I have no experience with DSLR's, or, as you will see from the list above, not even with auto focus, I have to learn most from the start level. Unfortunately, I am also at the moment a full time student of library and information science (at an age of no longer in my forties), so there has not been very much time to use my toy yet. But just wait until summer--- then I promise you some pics from Norway, north of the arctic circle---------by Pentax!
