Pentax Lover Just Coming Aboard

Well I finally joined the group. I've owned Pentax's for a number of years. I think the universal lens adaptability got me hooked. I just took delivery of my K3 yesterday and am trying to slog through the instructions. It seems to be a bit more complex than my k5 although the form factor and the menus are familiar. I'm starting out with the 18-250 mm which I've had for a few years. I've been apprehensive that this lens might not have the resolving power to keep up with the resolving power of the k5 but after reading the lens reviews this morning it appears I have nothing to worry about.

Oh, BTW I just bought the MX-1 a few weeks ago when the price dropped through the floor. I think that is one under-rated camera. I particularly like the ultra close focus range.

Welcome here, enjoy that new K-3 once you've got her under control and shown her who's boss.
