A Pentax SLR user for more than 45 years

I've used Pentax (and only Pentax) SLRs for more than 45 years, starting with a borrowed S1A. I switched to Pentax dSLRs just over 9 years ago, and typically I eventually buy the latest top-of-the-range K-mount dSLR. I currently use the K-5IIs plus a variety of DA and DA* lenses. My favourite lens over the last 4 years has been the DA* 60-250mm f/4.

Just lately I have been shooting lots of airshows and motor sports, and I can also convert one of my rooms at home into a small but reasonably well-equipped studio. I am trying to build skills for bird photography, but struggle with "bird in flight" photos!

My (non-commercial) website has a number of photographic galleries. It also has one of the world's largest collection of pages about the DNG raw file format outside of Adobe. I am a (registered) Wikipedia editor, typically writing about photographic topics, and webmaster for my local photographic society.

Welcome to the forum, the average user lifespan with Pentax systems seems to be about 30 years, now we know who to come to with the real difficult questions.
