hi, new here on pentax forum

Hello all, my name is will, and this is my 1st post here. I should be getting my pentax q tomorrow and wanted to be a part of this forum to see how I can get the best out of this little gem.
I have been into photography since the late 70s when I got my 1st SLR, which was a Pentax K1000. The best way to learn photography IMHO is by using a manual camera. I have a K1000 now (not the original one I had) and lenses to go with it.
I was an early adopter of the new digital camera era, getting my 1st camera, a Ricoh that had less than a mp of resolution and cost over $600. But, hey that was high end technology in the mid 90s.
I currently have an Olympus E-300, E-410, E-420, E-PL1, Nikon D100, D70s and a Sony A330.
Also have a Panasonic DMC- FZ20, DMC -TZ4, Nikon S6100 and a Kodak Z990.
I should be getting my Q with the prime lens that I ordered tomorrow and am looking forward to see how it performs.
I have already ordered the adapter to use my Pentax Auto110 lenses with the Q.
As you can see I am very much into the photography hobby and am looking forward to learning what I can about using the Q and also interacting with you on the forums.

Regards, Will
