A casual hello

It seems as if each time I search the web at large for something photographic I find exactly what I'm after on this forum. This place is a wonderful resource, even for those of us with few Pentax branded items to our names; I look forward to adding what I can to it.

Welcome aboard! We look forward to seeing your contributions. What few Pentax items do you possess? Some of us rather like to discuss gear. Cheers!

A recent acquisition is my only, a 35-70mm f2.8 from the dawn of autofocus. I've been so thoroughly abused by cheap Canon EF lenses that this Pentax's focus ring feels like a joy to use (it even stays where it's put). This does lead me to a question, though, which I'll put somewhere more appropriate.

Welcome and good to have you here.
I'm sure you've find the practical virtues of the Pentax system worth the switch.
