Hi, I'm new here

I'm what you would call an advanced amateur. I shoot primarily as art but I used to shoot a lot of weddings too. I started out with a Kodak Instamatic around 1970 when I was a teenager. Later I bought a used Vivitar SLR which had a PK mount and started buying lenses. Since then I have had a Pentax K1000, SF1, P30 (My favorite) and an ist*D (my least favorite) Now I have a K-30.

Welcome to the Forums. The K30 has good reviews here. With your history, you must have enough gear to be a Pentax hostage. Post some art images for us. That type of photography must be an interesting game.
