Greetings from N. Idaho

Hello all, after years of lurking, I've decided to finally join with the buying of a new Pentax DSLR. I've been around Pentax SLR's since the mid 80's or so, with my Dad's Ricoh XR2s.I bought a K100D DLSR shortly after it came out. My wife is letting me upgrade to a new DSLR, though she did say, "If you are going to get a new camera, you might as well get the best one you can." (Pentax mount of course). So I should be getting a new K3 with the 18-135mm kit and the bonus items from B+H Photo, by Friday.

Welcome to the forum, how on earth did you swing that?

I think that I need to take lessons in wife hypnosis from you.

Merci beaucoup Jean, haven't taken french since the mid 80's either (Canadian that is). I hope to get some of my images soon, including Tamron Adaptall-2 . Well here's a few taken with either Tamron 300 SP 60B, 500 55B, or the 18-55mm kit lens.
