Hello from western NY

Glad I found this forum. Recently purchased a k20d to take with me on a 6 week road trip to Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. I also have/had a Maxxum 7000 that doesn't work. I got a quote of $200 to get it fixed if it was a quick fix so I figured it was about time to dive into the the world of DSLR.

Welcome from NC!
The K20D is a tank and is great as long as you're not shooting in low light.
Some of the older FA lenses are a wonderful compliment to the camera and can be purchased pretty inexpensively. Enjoy!

Welcome from down near the Sun Coast of New York (Orange County)!

A good starter camera into the digital world. Enjoy the Tetons!
