Hi, this is MichaelP from the UK. Just joined. Have been a Pentax user about 45 yrs. since a teen. Current camera is a K30 but I also have an ME Super and an MX which, the latter two of course, use the old 35mm stuff. Had the K3 over a year and I think its a great camera. And great that I can still use all my old "K" and "M" lenses - even an old Sigma zoom which supports the auto aperture option. Have eventually worked out how to get a Metz 36 AF 4P to work with the K30 too. Worked flawlessly with my old KM (Daughter has it now) but had issues with the K30 to begin with. Even got it to sync. at 180. Anyone else had similar problems? My lens line up: Pentax 18-55 DA; Pentax 16-45 f4; Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 EX DC; and Pentax 50 -200 DAL. Old lenses area Pentax "m" 28 f.28; Pentax "m" 40 f2.8; Pentax "K" 50 f1.8; Pentax "K" 85 f2: Pentax "K" 135 f 3.5 and Sigma 28-70 F3.5 zoom.

My daughter has a habit of wandering off with my camera gear also! So I use that as an opportunity to buy more. You experience will be greatly appreciated here!
