Greetings Pentaxians

I just picked up a K-7 used for cheap. Nice step up from the Panasonic FZ-35 I have been using. I also have a spotmatic and a k-1000 that I adore. I can't explain why I love pentax, but they do a lot of things right and make excellent photographer's tools. I also love the gigantic selection of beautiful primes out there...

Congratulations on the K-7, you love using those old lenses on the K-7, it's got a little learning curve, but there's tons of help on this forum. Have fun.

Actually the K-7 is so well laid out I felt right at home. I only had to read the manual for a few things that were unclear to me. I LOVE THIS CAMERA!

Welcome from a fellow K7 shooter, i agree it's not as bad as some whinge. And definitely as good as anything i've shot on film at 1600 iso (which is almost entirely b/w though i've pushed the Fuji 800)
