Hello from Dayton Ohio

I'm new to the Pentax world, having just purchased a K-01 w/ 40mm XS lens. In fact this is my first interchangeable lens camera, having always used bridge and P&S cameras in the past and iPhone more recently.

I look forward to learning, and eventually being able to afford additional lenses and a DSLR body.

That brings back a lot of memories for me, Tim. Do they still do the ice skating there at Riverscape? I miss that. And Charlies Imports Deli. And Roosters. And the Oregon District. And Dragons games. And walking through the Dayton Art Institute on Saturdays. And...

Thanks for the photo of the stadium, Tim. Looks like they still get good turnouts. But now you have reminded me of Mendelson's as well. I remember going there as a kid and hating it. Years later, into adulthood, I went back and found it very interesting. You are making me a little homesick, friend...

I've purchased a couple of pieces of legacy glass to start learning with: SMC Pentax-A 28-80mm f3.5-4.5 (with a UV and a polarizing filter) and SMC Pentax-A 70-210mm f4 with Macro (also with a UV and a polarizing filter). They haven't arrived yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I purchased them from Jane English, a book and calendar photographer in Vermont, who apparently kept them in very good condition. She was the original purchaser of the lenses, too, back in the 1988-1990 time period.
