Intro from Maine (USA)


I've been a Pentax user since film days (MX and ME Super), but had let things lapse for quite a while.

Several years ago I bought an ist DL (when they were new) and have really enjoyed it, but am now purchasing a K-5 (original version - taking advantage of price drops). I currently use the 18-55 kit lens from the ist DL, and have a Tamron 70-200 f4-5.6. Looking at the Pentax 18-135 WR to go with the new camera.

Hello! Welcome fellow Pentaxian!

Hey... how was the earthquake there? Down here in around Boston was just a weird rumble.

Welcome from Maine! Yep there are a couple of us from Maine here. Welcome aboard, I think you'll find the forum very informative and sometimes entertaining.

Thanks for the welcome!

I've been lurking for a while (checking out the great info on the K-5, k-5 II/IIs, etc.), so I can definitely see the value! In fact, I'm planning to put some tips on using some of my older lenses from my MX/ME Super to work on the DSLRs.

When the earthquake (4.6, I believe) happened, we had just finished several days of repair work on our (long, asphalt) driveway, so it sounded and felt a lot like a big dump truck going down the drive. We even looked out to see why they had come back (and of course they hadn't!)!

Hello and welcome, I'm sure you will enjoy your K5 as much as I enjoy mine. Just visited Maine 2 weeks ago, want a pretty state. I took this photo in Maine. We really enjoyed the great scenery and good foods.
