K3 newbie

I am 67 and have always enjoyed photography. Played with a ME and MX many years back but settled on a Nikon F2 for a good part of my film photography. In recent years I have played with a lot of kit, but I recently bought a K3 and love it; it is right up to date, robust and feels so balanced in the hand. While my use is limited and I have a lot to learn, I immediately felt at home with this camera much as I did with my F2. I am also happy to have come across this site and look forward to learning from more experience Pentax users.

Chris, I got K3 in March and have been pleased with it. I have used it almost exclusively with the old 60s lenses and I am impressed with the results I have been processing just recently. Brings back the pleasure of photography in a way that an earlier (entry level) DSLR I have did not do for me. I out grew that quickly, but the K3 would be hard to outgrow.

Welcome to the forum, aye it's just a feel, very difficult to put into words.

I came over from Nikon F3's to Pentax LX's, back in the old days.
