I have been reading this forum and the lens reviews since the last few months. I just registered a few days ago and just want to say hello to everyone.
I have been in the SLR field for more than 15 years but decided to get serious recently. My 1st SLR was a Minolta and bought my 1st digital (2nd SLR) K-X with 18-55 & 50-200 from B&H last year and enjoying it a lot. I also have bought a few older Pentax lenses from e-bay recently.
After thinking a lot and doing a lot of research, I decided to become a PENTAXIAN because of the backward compatibility with its older 30 million EXCELLENT lenses. I also do consider Pentax as good as the big two but they are in light only because of their marketing and $$ power. Sometime I get surprise when someone tells me after reading “Pentax” on my camera, "Hey, I never heard of this company. Is it a good camera?$#^*%%"
If people start to understand what is QUALITY and VALUE, one day I might see Pentax as a BIG ONE!!!
Well, that’s enough for today and has a great day!
