New to Pentax.

Greetings. Gomez Adams here, new to Pentax cameras, but I quite like the versatility of being able to use older lenses from the film era with newer digital bodies without the need for a lot of cumbersome add-ons. I come from an Olympus OM system background, but I'm not very impressed by their digital lineup. After a bit of research, I found the K30 and I think it's a great value for the price, and the versatility can't be beat. Looking forward to learning the new system, as well as occasional film pics with the SF10 body I got with one of my lenses.

Welcome! Lots of excellent old glass out there, and this is the place to find people who enjoy using that glass
