Hey There!

It's taken me a while to stumble upon this site but I'm so glad I did. I'm John and I live in Western, MA. I'd classify my self as a beginner to slightly intermediate.

I'm shooting with a Pentax K-x that I bought almost 4 years ago. At the time I worked for an Apple store and half the crowd was Nikon and the other half Canon. What pushed me to the K-x was that my mom had a K1000 when we were growing up so using the old lenses she had was appealing. Of course, after I bought the camera, she has no idea where the lenses she had went. haha. But nevertheless, I couldn't be happier with my choice.

I've actually had some recent luck at some local tag sales picking up some goodies so the lens database has been very helpful as a frame of reference.

Love the site!

Hello John, Welcome to the Forum,
It's good to hear you've found some bargains, what gear did you buy? Make us all jealous and say a 300mm f/2.8 for 12 dollars! Just kidding.
But PK lenses are out there, I still check pawn shops and yard sales when I can. eBay has been my most reliable source overall, but there's always the danger of the occasional clunker.
Glad to have you aboard, post some photos soon,

Welcome aboard, I'm sure many Pentax users started out the same way using the backwards lens capability.
