Greetings from Florida

New Pentax user here, just got my K-30 yesterday. I used to shoot a lot of 35mm film back in the day (30 years ago) and have several K mount lenses from then which i had been told in a camera shop were useless on modern cameras, so they've just sat for several years...
The wife and I were both ready to move up to a DSLR and I did a lot of research, was leaning toward a Canon when I decided to research those lenses some more, ended up here. Once I started adding the K-30 into my research it became apparent that not only was it a solid choice but with my old lenses compatibility it became even more of a high value purchase.

So, I have some old skills to relearn, some new ones to learn and a lot of fun in the future with my new camera. The wife wants to sign up for a photography class, sounds like a winner to me as the whole SLR thing can be daunting to get started. I hear the shutter so she must be practicing on the cats again, that solid shutter sound brings back a lot of memories for me.
