Hello from Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada

I'm upgrading from a Canon S100 to a Dslr as it was a little undewelming(great for fitting in the pocket, terrible in low light). I was a film student a few years ago and want something with a little more control and higher quality as I shoot manual or aperture priority 90% of the time. My father shot with an ME Super in the 80's-90's so I figured I'd continue shooting Pentax in the new digital era. A bonus is I have a nice Vivitar 28-200 and pentax-m 50mm f/2(metal body). I also happened to find a pentax-a 50mm f1.7... I hope the lens prices(new) don't go up much more.

Woot! Thunder Bay is awesome. Enjoy the Pentax cameras, and use all the old lenses you can find... buying new ones is never cheap or easy!
