Hello

Good evening everyone. My screen name is JBAD and I joined to educate myself on some different camera models in hopes that I will be happy with my purchase. I currently have a Nikon D40 DSLR which I use regularly and a Pentax ME Super 35mm that hasn't taken a picture in years.

I am not sure if I'll go with a Pentax DSLR because there isn't really anyone in Ohio that carrys Pentax. I am also frustrated that when I used the email link on Pentax' website it was kicked back as undeliverable. Cord Camera says they can get one from another store for me to touchy feel and see if I like it, but that can be a hassle. I own one lens per camera owned so I am not tied to a brand because of lenses.

I am happy to be here and look forward to reading what members have to say about their experiences with the Digital Pentax world and make a decision soon. I enjoy shooting womens gymnastics. My daughter competes and the season starts soon so no time to waste in my decision making.

Thanks for lead

Thank you for the information on Dodd Camera. I have not heard of them before, but maybe because the nearest one is 45 - 60 minutes away. I will check them out when I am passing that way or may be a good excuse for a road trip.

You're welcome, and all the best with the search - I know I love my K-5, and I've heard good things about the K-30. Good luck!
