Hullo!

I don't recall if I've ever introduced myself. I just purchased a K-30 with kit lenses (18-55mm and 55-300mm). I've been shooting Oly stuff for the past several years (E-30 w/50-200mm - which is for sale, BTW), and I'm keeping an E-620. I shoot just about everything but people. I suck BAD at people photography - I do "OK" at candids, but formals? BLLEEECCCCCCHHHHH! My forte is wildlife and some still life. I look forward to interacting with y'all!

Welcome Gary, as someone who has seen your work, I can't believe that you suck at any type of photography, your photos are always excellent! One thing I did not warn you about with Pentax is LBA (Lens Buying Addiction), since you can use all of those old K-mount lenses and M42s with an adapter it's just too tempting to pick up cheap lenses. Right now I own 8 lenses, but I have bought 74 since buying my first Pentax in 2009. I buy them, use them awhile then resale them (or take them apart and render them useless).

Well, thanks very much, Tom! As far as LBA, I'm pretty much past that. Legacy lenses don't hold the same interested as the current glass, although, I don't rule it out totally. Just depends.
