Hello from Miami

Hello everyone,

I'm not a Pentax user but I have a vested interest in someone one this forum who is very close and special to me. She's assured me that you folks won't throw rocks on me once you find out that I use Nikons. (ducking)

Hopefully I can learn a thing or two and perhaps contribute to this wonderful forum!

No, we certainly won't throw rocks. There are quite a few non-Pentax, ex-Pentax, and multi-system users here. Welcome aboard!

Welcome.
There is also a dedicated non-Pentax section of the forum discussing other systems.
Hope you enjoy it here.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. I really appreciate it.

Kerrowdown; There are Pentax cameras in the house so I do know how nice they are. And, every so often I get a bit gentle ribbing about something the Pentax can do that my Nikon can't. I'm used to it! LOL

Welcome Ron. Do the ribbings take the form of "don't take it outside in the rain, it might turn in to a Pentax"? Looking forward to seeing some of your work soon. Cliff

Actually, no, that .. uh, feature hasn't come up yet. In fact I had no idea that rain had the ability to turn Nikons into Pentaxes anyway.

And, I probably wouldn't mind as long as I got a Pentax comparable to my D7k and it came with a similar set of lenses. I gave up being a fan boy for ANY brand long ago and that applies to just about product you can name. Manufacturers have huge advertising budgets.... and I've yet to receive a check in the mail for evangelizing on anyone's behalf.

Thanks for the Welcome, Cliff. I appreciate it!
