Hi from a lurker!

Hello fellow Pentaxians from a former site lurker, and now newbie site member

I've just acquired a K-7, after letting my ME Super languish in my closet for too many years. So I've been reading the owner's manual and playing around taking pix of my pets, but hope to get outside and use my old Pentax 50mm 1.2 prime this weekend, and may try out my Tamron and Soligor zooms too!!

Any tips on using a manual focus on these new fangled dslr's would be much appreciated!

This is a great site with many wonderful members.

Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute something useful too!!
