Hi everyone. I've been into gear for about four years, and only recently have actually gotten into the picture-taking part of this hobby . It was easy to learn technical stuff alone, just reading other people's posts, but actually trying to get better at creating something special out of a photograph has quickly taught me that it's incredibly helpful to interact with people who are far more experienced than I. Thus I am here to contribute what little I can and maybe mooch a little off your collective knowledge . I Currently shoot with a K-x DSLR that I got when I was 17 (two years ago), and a ton of different lenses from M42 primes to the new 35mm DA f2.4 lens (got it in the mail this morning!). So anyway, from what I've seen, this looks to be the best Pentax forum out there and I'm looking forward to learning more about this stuff!

Welcome to the site - lots of good folks and info here!

You might want to look for a user here - dadipentak - as he's from the MD area and frequently gets a group together to go out and actually take pics!!
