Salutations from Northern Illinois on the banks of Mighty the Mississippi

Lurker nomore! The time has come for me to join in, starting with a little history.

ProudPentax owner since 1976 with a K-1000, ME, MX w/winder (favorite camera I don'tuse), LBA , GBA, darkroom .... Went mostly inactive for 10-15 years

. 2003lead me to a Canon and digital brought me back into the obsession. Wanted a *stbut budget said a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 P&S, nice camera but still not a DSLR.Finally bought a Kr in 2010 (35000clicks to date) and the obsession is worse .

Not muchinto post processing , learningbut I get more satisfaction from getting it old school 'in camera' rather thanbuild and manipulate. Maybe if I was better at PP I might change my mind.Starting to shoot in RAW more but Pentax does such a good job with JPEGs Isometimes get lazy. Withthe wealth of information available here and I promise to look first (I seemost questions have been asked and answered), ask questions 2nd and contributewhen appropriate.

Welcome to the forum, this will stop the lurker messages as well.

Always good to have another Pentax veteran on board.
