Glad to be on board!

I became aware of the Pentax Forum after acquiring my 'Q'. I've used the site many times and decided I'd better join up. I'm kind of shy and reclusive by nature, but I think this will a good place to come out of my shell. I bought myself a Pentax SP500 w/55mm lens as a college graduation present in 1972. It was my only camera for the next 30 years. It taught me most of what I know about taking pictures.
I am really enjoying my 'Q' and look forward to what I'll learn from it. I was totally undisciplined about recording exposure data, etc. with the SP500 and am so glad that's all taken care in the digital age. In 2003 I bought an Olympus Evolt E300 and later an E-P1. Now I'm back in the Pentax fold and glad to be here. Looking foward to more.
