Greetings from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan

After decades of photographing with a Leica rangefinder film camera, medium and large format cameras, I moved to digital.

For a couple of years, I had a Canon 5D Mark II with Canon lenses. I sold them and purchased a Pentax K-5. It is the best digital camera that I've tried. I also have a Sony Alpha 850 and Zeiss lenses, but seem to shoot much more with the Pentax, as the K-5 is a lot lighter, smaller, and easy to maneuver.

I must say that Pentax lenses are excellent; I have four of them. The 21mm is my favorite
