Goodbye Canon, Hello Pentax

For Valentine's Day, I broke up with Canon and decided to pursue a relationship with Pentax. Selling the last of my Canon lenses to a co-worker this morning solidified the split. I ordered two K10D bodies, grips, flashes, and the DA* zooms just before the rebate promo ended. I found a silver 77mm Limited on eBay for a good price the other day and had to give in.

I haven't had the opportunity to play with my new toys as of yet due to a few projects at home that I need to complete for my wife, but I should be up and about shortly.

I look forward to learning and sharing with this community. In the several weeks that I have been lurking, it appears to be a nice place to hang out.

Welcome to the forum.
What were the reason for breaking up -- too many headaches?

Welcome to the site/group, as I'm sure you'll love it here. But I think, I may be wrong, Tux only has the ones in the green.
