Hello from Arizona

Long time film Pentax user here. Fifty years with an H3V and in the last 20 years, several other Pentax bodies of similar vintage. I've more or less given up film and doing digital with a non-Pentax camera and have become bored and dissatisfied with the results. My ideal digital camera would be similar to the early Pentax's with everything manual so I wouldn't have to be fighting the camera to get the results I want. Hope such a camera becomes available some day soon so I can use all of my old Takumar lenses. In the meantime, hope to learn what's going on with the current Pentax equipment from the people on this forum to see if we're getting any closer to my ideal camera.

Welcome. I have fond memories of U of A in 84-85 and taking photos of the desert with my MX (which I still have).

Welcome aboard Cyberider, Pentax dSLRs gives lots of control. I started with a Minolta SRT202 could hardly afford to get the film developed most of time. I love digital.
