Hi From Alaska

Hello All:

I am not a new pentax user, I have been a pentax user since I started learning film photography with a pentax k1000. I now have a Pentax K-5 with two lenses right now. I have the DA* 16-50mm and the DA* 300mm lense. I love all kinds of photography but I really like air show, sports and wildlife. I am in the US Coast Guard and hoping to do more photography when I get out. I just signed up for the professional course in photography from

I hope to learn a lot as I go along in the forum and meeting new people!!
