Old Pentax LX user

Hi Guys,
I am excited to be in this forum. Am planning to shift from the film to the digital world. Have been using Pentax LX for more than 25 years with more than 6000 slides exposed covering travel, wild life and landscape. Planning to start by buying K-5 and use my existing lenses.
Thanks for your feedbacks.

Hi Sunder,
I've been shooting with a K-5 for the past year and a half and I'm now shifting to film. No reflection on the K-5, it's a great camera, just wanted to try something different. Welcome to the forum.

Welcome Aboard!

Hello Sunder,
Welcome to the digital world, it's an exciting ride. Like you, I went from years of film shooting to digital SLRs, after a long layoff.
There's quite a bit to learn, but the new Pentax DSLRs are not too different from film SLRs in layout and use. And all your old glass will work fine.
You can find lots of good info here and any questions, fire away!
Good Luck,

Welcome! I jumped from an old K-1000 to a DS some seven years ago myself. I still shoot some film for fun and have really enjoyed the versatility of the system.
