Hi, I am jumping back into photography after a long absence. I have a degree in photography, but got a job outside my field and got off track for a long time. In school I took photos using a K1000, which I still have. Looking to get a Pentax K-5iis one day. I have a Nikon D200, and I never really liked it, but it was a gift. I am glad to see there are so many Pentax people out there

Welcome! You cannot go wrong with a K-5 IIs or a K-3!

Thank you! I would love a k-3 but it's not in the budget now. I am thinking the price probably won't go down anytime soon.
