Hello from Alabama


My name is Mark, and I own a Pentax MX, 2 50mm lenses, and an 80-200mm zoom lens. I have not used them in many years due to the expense and hassle of film processing. I am hoping to find a digital SLR (probably a K10D) I can use them with. I have just set up a 10 gallon reef tank (first saltwater) and my point-and-shoot camera is just not cutting it for getting photos of all the critters it is growing.

These are the lenses I have:

- SMC Pentax-A 1:2 50mm
- SMC Pentax-M 1:1.7 50mm
- Kiron 80-200mm f/4 MACRO 1:4

Also, my daughter is taking journalism (i.e. yearbook and newspaper) in her first year of high school this year, and I think she will be asking for a better camera soon. I learned many basics with the MX, so I hope she will further develop her interest in photography this year.
