Hello everyone
I joined this forum today after months of debate whether or not I should. Not that I'm unsure if I should, it's more or less that I don't join forums often and the subject must be important and relevant to my hobby or pastime. So, here I am saying hello to the group and wishing to learn and offer information I can.
I have been interested in photography since high school, about 35 years, and have owned Pentax camera's since then. Today I own a Pentax original film camera, istDL and a new K30, blue. I have the original 18-55 zoom and the Pentax 70-300 zoom. I really enjoy birding and photographing nature so in 2006 bought a istDL digital, I love that camera but after 40,000 pictures its starting to get a little tired. So, last week I decided to pick up a new K30, blue model. So far I love the feeling, menue's, and general ergonomics. If it's anything like the istDL for durability and reliability I will be a very happy Pentax owner. Well after owning Pentax cameras for thirty years I guess I am just a suckered for Pentax. I love the brand and their ability to not be a conformist with the big two. Stick to your guns Ricoh-Pentax and keep building excellent Pentax products.
