Hello from Virginia - lifelong Pentax shooter

Hey all, finally made an account here. I've read a lot but never bothered to get a login.

Lifelong Pentax shooter here from Asahi Spotmatic days. I was out of the SLR world for about 10 years when my last film camera was a ZX-5 and my first DSLR was my K-x. Just recently, this week, moved on up to a K-5. Loving it.

Great to hear from you!

I don't have quite the history (or brand loyalty), but I had over 10 year gap after shooting Canon AE-1. My first Pentax was a k-x and I went straight to a K-5 as well. I love my K-5 too.
I think Pentax have got a few things right that really appeal to me.

I'm sure you will have plenty to contribute to the forums!
