My name is Richard, I am from Springfield, Illinois, and I own a K-7, purchased about two years ago. My lenses are SMC-DA Pentax weather-resistant zooms. One is an 18-55 mm; the other is a 50-200 mm. I've been a serious amateur photographer for about 40 years. I bought my K-7 to replace a defective Canon Eos Rebel system. Factors influencing my buying a K-7 were its relative light weight and build quality. I also appreciated the weather resistant characteristics of the body and lenses.

I hope this forum will stimulate me to use my Pentax K-7 more frequently (it's not my only camera). I've already learned that a firmware update is available and look forward to seeing how it changes my camera's performance. I may also be interested in researching and ultimately purchasing a longer telephoto lens.
