New Pentax user here..

Hi...I have come from Canon 300D and Nikon D50. Both nice cameras. I have sold both systems off a while back and have went with Pentax K10D,kit lens, 50mm1.8, Sigma 530Super flash, battery grip.

Im very happy with my choice and for the first time im dont have some sort of buyers remorse. Not that the other systems were not good....I was just unhappy with a couple things..Matter of fact, If I had the money I would have a Nikon D300. ....But im very happy with my decision so far.

Just to tell you something about me.....

I DO NOT use language skills found in most "grown up forums"...I speak how I am...young at hear, crazy and free, and uneducated......I have been torn apart on another forum for not sounding "grownup" when I chat...

I workout 5 days a week..Have to stay bigger and stronger then my 2 boys.."11, 13"

I work in construction

I play videogames ALOT

I draw some

Im a 36 year old kid and plan never to change....

Been married now for.......well......Since 1993 and been with my wife since 1992.

Hope to maybe make some good friends here......peaceout

Welcome to the forum. A big kid brickie who's into photography - awesome!

Well I think you've made a great choice in going K10D. Best value for money by far, and quite a significant upgrade from your previous dSLRs.

Here there's a good mix of newbies, amateurs and pros who are all very helpful for advice and just for general discussion.

Look forward to hearing from you with piccies from your side of the US in the future.
Take care.
