Hi from Salmon Arm BC

I know, fish don't have arms they have fins. But lakes have arms, and I live at Salmon Arm on beautiful Shuswap Lake.

I'm an enthusiast-level photographer, mainly shooting landscapes, nature and travel, and family of course. I am a member of Shuswap Photo Arts Club. I am joining Pentax Forums because I want to upgrade to a DSLR (I currently use Panasonic FZ-35) and am very interested in the Pentax products, due in no small part to the many comments on these forums.

I used a K-1000 for about 20 years before switching to Canon AE-1 just before the digital age, so am no stranger to the brand, and I always liked its performance (though I did wish for some auto functions!) . So, I'm hoping to get back into the Pentax family if my wife will one day give me permission to buy a K-3 and a pair of decent zooms...

Kerrowdown, the CO and I had some great times on shores of Loch Ness. Maybe I should remind her about that!
