Hello from the Canadian Praires

Hi Everyone,

My interest in Pentax goes back about 35 years when I purchased a used camera and lenses from my mother who had purchased them used from the local newspaper photographer, I believe it was a K1000. I then purchased a Pentax Super Program, which I still have and just when digital cameras were starting to come out a Pentax MZ-7 because digital will never take good pictures ( boy did that statement ever get blown out of the water! ). Soon after purchasing this camera life got real busy and my photo taking deteriorated to quick snapshots on 3 meg point and shoots.

Recently we purchased a winter home in Sun City West Az. and joined the photography club there. My interest is now rising again and being semi retired I am hoping to get more involved again. I just purchased a new K-50 with the 2 kit lenses (18-55 & 50-200). Haven't had much of a chance to do more than turn it on yet but I am sure that will change. I will likely have lots of questions so this seemed like the right place to join as it seems everyone is very helpful for those of us that are less knowledgeable!
