Howdy from Dan in New Mexico USA

I have had my K-30 about 4 months now, very pleased overall with the hardware and results. The small size, light weight, bright VF, and high frame rate were the most compelling features for my interests. I have had point-and-shoots for years and use PS Elements for PP, used film Leicas and OM-1s in days of yore. I'm mostly a JPEG shooter but would like to learn more about image processing. Currently looking for a 55-300 lens as my main interest is photos of my Salukis, which can run 35mph if a rabbit is involved. My biggest worry is lens availability and price over time, as I am unlikely to buy lenses over US$1000.

Cheers, Dan

Welcome to the forum, Pentax lenses have been backwards compatible with some limitations for many years now.

This has allowed the use of legacy glass on even the most modern of their cameras.
