Hello from Silver Spring, MD


I am an experienced novice and I have been a user of a couple of Pentax film cameras in the past (zx-5 and p1-p) and left the hobby for a few years. Since then, I've been mostly shooting family stuff with digital point and shoots. It was SO much easier than film. But I really missed the SLR control and flexibility. So, I finally bit the bullet and bought k-5 on Cyber Monday (w/ 18-55mm WR kit lens: $1134 at Abe's of Maine).

Well, just wanted to introduce myself and give a bit of info about myself.

Congrats on the purchase- that deal was probably one of the best we've seen to date
