Name is Will.

Just ordered a K-5. The camera should arrive next week.

Cameras? Like thousands I started with a k1000 way back in the 60's. Had a Pentax MX for a long time along with a Canon A-1. Somewhere along the way I picked up a 3Pn too. Thought it was time to go digital. Have a Fuji X10 and that little camera got me into digital photography. I'm hoping to do some wildlife work with a telephoto lens. Strictly a hobbyist!

Looking forward to learning about digital Pentax from you all!

Greetings, and welcome to the Forums.

With a background like that, you'll find lots in common with many people here. There's also a few X10 fans here - we're not all one-eyed, but there is a distinct flavour to the site, as you'd expect from the name.

Enjoy your time here: there's plenty of help and advice available, too.


PS - are you sure it wasn't a Spotmatic you started with? The K1000 wasn't manufactured until around 1976!

Tis true!

My daughter is now blessed with both cameras. I thought I bought her a Spotmatc. Probably just the reverse. Appears I bought her the K1000. Rather cheap on my part Anyhoo, they are both neatly stored somewhere.......
