Hello, I'm a retired mechanic/machinist. One of my many hobbies has been photography, Which I have been doing for the last 40 years.
My first SLR was a Honeywell Pentax spot medic. Which I still own, along with an Me, ZX50, MZ5n, K100D. And I have just ordered a K-3, Which I should receive early next week. I also have a dozen or more lenses of various types and Focal length.
I have been lurking on this forum for a couple of weeks now, and from what I have read, this is a pretty good place to ask questions and get good solid answers.

I look forward to Participating and hopefully contributing to this forum.

We may be on the endangered species list, but with the K-3, I expect a strong recovery.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Forum. Your K-3 is a real 'beast' (ie great camera) and we look forward to see your shots.
