Long time viewer, about a year, trying to use your expertise in deciding if I wanted to make the jump to Pentax DSLR at my age. I've been shooting slide film exclusively since 1977 in my Pentax ME(stolen), MZ-5N (died in July), and my 22 year old PZ-1.
I want to thank the forum members for providing me a better insite into making an informed decision on making the jump to digital. Now what am I goung to do with those 10 rolls side film in the freezer?
Anyway, I made the jump last month and purchased a K-50 and 18-135. Thanks for your help.

Welcome aboard! You'll like it.

I'd find a nice day and use up that film at a botanical garden or somewhere like that.
