Hello from Illinois

I am relatively a novice to digital photography. I went with a Pentax DSLR because I had a drawer full of lenses for my Pentax SLR's. I would like to eventually learn to photoshop digital pics. I used to process B&W and color prints in my home darkroom. But I got tired of the mess, and dealing with some of the nasty chemicals in color photography.

Welcome aboard. I started with a K-x after a break from slrs for 20 years. Loved it and moved to a K-r and now a K5. What camera are you shooting and which legacy lenses do you have?

My DSLR is a K100D. I also have a ME, ME Super, MX, and an LX. I have several lenses, as follows: Soligor 78-210mm f3.5, Vivitar 35-105mm 3.2, ASAHI 100mm 2.8, ASAHI 28mm 2.8, ASAHI 35-105mm 3.5, plus the ASAHI 50mm 1.4 for the four camera bodies.

Good to have you here.
The K100D was my first dSLR. Love the colour rendition of that mighty little camera.
Enjoy the forum.

Welcome to the forums, I started off with a Pentax K100DS, and I am still using it while having a K-5.

When I learn to master the K100D, I will probably up-grade to a newer model.
