Hello from Colorado's Choice City

My first DSLR was a Nikon and i was so facinated by all the technological advances with digital, i thought, I wonder what Pentax is doing? Did a little research, bought a k-x, gave my Nikon to my daughter, puchased some lenses, took a photogaphy class at the Art institute, bought some more pentax stuff including the amazing k5. So now I'm hooked. Sorry Nikon.
Pentax is strangely addictive. Why is that?
Happy to be here. Lots great people and interesting posts.

Pentax has a very strong community following, and (IMO) their cameras are easier to use as you don't need to press as many buttons to get stuff done as with other cameras. For example, you can change both the shutter speed and the aperture in P mode- try doing that on a Nikon

The K-5 has best-in-class image quality, and is really underrated. If it carried a different brand name, I'm sure it would win camera of the year...
