Good evening pentax fans!

I have joined this forum to be able to use the marketplace.

However, I have been reading articles for months now and I was able to repair two ZX-7s with the guidance found on this forum! (the famous motor gear problem)
Then I bought a used pentax k-m and some old manual lenses (that I love!) and now I am about to upgrade to a k-5 so that I can take acceptable low-light shots. Though many advise not to go with a brand but with your needs, I find pentax cameras more exciting than any other brand I have seen so far. I also consider this website the best place to find resources for anything pentax related. Thank you for the creators and the fans!

Hello iceberg, welcome to the Forum!
Glad to hear you've got some Pentax DSLR's, but saying you're also buying Legacy glass just makes my day! It's a big part of the reason many are here.
Including myself.

Welcome to the Forums, iceberg. Sounds like you are pretty handy at fixing cameras. This place has some great resources and you can probably add to the knowledge base now!
