Hello from Berlin

Hello Folks,
I've just registered - and here is my introduction:
I'm a Pentax user since the 80ies, but not a fanboy. In the analog days I was looking for a compact, yet competent, camera. So I went for a Program A. In the following years I bought some nice glass an a couple of ME's and two wonderful MX. This camera in all it's simplicity still marvels me today. When the digital days arrived, Pentax was well behind the competition and I went for a Fuji (6900z) instead. When it's time had come there was still no good Pentax in sight. So I went to Sony (R1) - a camera I still use occasionaly. But when the K10 arrived, I found my way back to the k-mount. The promise to be able to use my old glass was tempting. But, as you know for sure, it didn't work well (exposure via green button was really crap). Now I'm happily using a Samsung GX-20 (ssssssslow camera - just for static objects) and a K7, which serves me well. Of course I'd like to see a FF-body, but IMHO this will never happen. I'm shooting mainly pets and landscape and whatever the customer demands.
