Finally a pentaxian

Hello all

I've been using my Samsung Gx10 for the last 6 years and been very pleased with it, mostly because it gave me access to the Pentax range of lenses. Recently I've upgraded to the k-3, and my fascination have only become greater.
Before going digital - I had several SLR's, from early Nikkormat EL via the Minolta 7000AF and Canon T90, before settling on Minolta 9000AF with program back and Contax 137ma and a Contax RTSIII.

My main reason for sticking with Pentax is the total lack of scene modes, and on a close second is the aperture preview switch on the power switch.

Looking forward to many great tips on how to master my new k-3, already now the so-called follow focus - at least in my mind - maybe should be renamed random focus, unless I'm missing something.

Welcome to the forum, now your a "true" Pentax user, I was going to say enjoy the K-3 but you seen to have a slight issue there.

I can't help directly as I don't have one, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly that can offer some insight for you.

Well - Pentax does strike some notes in my photo heart. It's all about what's behind the camera AND what is attached at the front of the camera. I'm enjoying the k-3 with all its buttons. Look out for some 10-17 posts
