Hello from the West Coast of Canada

Hi there all

I've been a Pentax user since I purchased my K1000 back in the late 70's. I currently have a ME Super, Program+ and a SuperProgram to play with and near-future plans have me taking the digital plunge and getting a K30 once I crunch the budget numbers! I'll use my old lenses, some manual and some "A" series.

The handle comes from the old Plymouth Reliant K car and of course the K1000 camera and I'd like to think of myself as reliable.

I look forward to learning the digital stuff (Photoshop as a darkroom etc) and also contributing to the film portions as I've done a few things in my 35 years of using a Pentax camera!

Welcome fellow Canadian West Coaster! You will not be disappointed in the K30. Sometimes I feel like the K30 was built specifically to be used in our wet little corner of the world.
