Hi, from the sunshine state

I am new and as of right now do not own a Pentax camera. I have been out of the hobby for many years,
Now that social security is providing the paycheck I have the time to get back in.

At one time I had a Pentax 6x7 but that was 40 years ago. Now I think a X-5 is the best I can afford.
Once I get it, I will be more than happy to submit shots, and take my shots from those with much more experience.

Welcome to PF! Not trying to dissuade you from getting a X-5, but you might still find something used on the marketplace here that fits your budget.

Whatever you end up with, enjoy your new status and your old hobby!

Welcome to the forum.
I just wanted to add a +1 to what savoche has said above...I noticed that Rupert has a great offer going on a Tokina lens and K20D in the items for sale...could be a great way to return to Pentax for you...
