New Member Greeting

Greetings Everyone
I guess you can consider me a die hard Pentax Camera user considering I purchased my first Pentax in 1979 an Ashai Pentax K1000 a truly Manual camera.
I used that camera for over 20 years on land and on the wild North Atlantic with great success.

I finally gave up the K1000 when I discovered what I thought was in focus wasn't and I upgraded to an auto focus MZ which I used for a couple of years until I was dragged kicking and screaming into the digital age with a K100D in 2007 and fell wildly in love with it. I then upgraded to a K-R earlier this year.

I am one that never deletes a usable image and I am continually amazed by the number of digital images I've amassed since switching to digital.
I have also done a lot of experimenting with the lenses 28 - 85 and 70 - 300 FJ zooms from my Film camera, the K-D 50 - 200 Digital and of course the 18-55 that came with the camera with some of what I believe to be amazing results. Stay tuned I intend post some of my favorites to this forum in the future.
