Hi all! Finally just joined the forum....been an avid reader for 2 or 3 years now. Thanks to all for the great information and advice - this site is a huge asset to the Pentax community.

Been a longtime Pentax guy - started as a kid with a used K1000 in the late 80's, then moved to a ZX-M and currently still shooting with my K100D for the last 4 or 5 years (though I'm stuffing the cookie jar in hopes of a K5!)

Welcome former lurker. I bought a K100D in 2007 and used it until I just recently sold it, though I did buy a K-r in May. It is still a great camera.

Thanks for the welcome....I agree - the K100D is still solid even today. The AF speed can be a little frustrating, but it's also been fun to play and experiment to see how much I can push the camera to deliver. It still can surprise - just got recently got out a beautiful 8x10 family portrait using my FA 50mm.
