Noob To The Forum

I'm from Portland Oregon. I have 2 Pentax cameras, the K-x and the K-5. I have had the K-x for 2yrs now and the K-5 for about 12hrs
Before i went digital i had the Pentax k1000 and loved it. I have stuck with Pentax because of the lenses that i have collected over time. It just seems silly to start all over with some other form factor that does the same thing. I couldn't imagine changing to Nikon or Canon at this point.
I do photography casually for the most part. I plan on stepping up my game with the K-5. It's such a nice piece of machinery. I got the K-5 and the 18-55 wr kit lens new for $830 by the way. By the looks of it that's quite the bargain.
