An introduction

Greetings from the state of Ohio.

I am a recent Pentax user. Before digital, I had a 35mm point and shoot. Eventually I got a Cannon a620 (7 megapix p&s).
Eventually that Cannon broke, and I began the research to get a new camera. I looked at all the names, compared bridge cameras vs. dslr vs. mirroless
and finally decided that I would get the Pentax K-50. I waited until I got the right pricing and made the purchase.

Besides the K-50 and the 18-55 & 50-200 kit lenses, I have the pentax-A f1.7 50mm, Takumur f2.5 135mm, and the Pentax-m f4 200mm.

I used to belong to the local photography club, but since I started my current job, I can no longer go to the meetings.

Therefore, for photography advice I have been watching many YouTube videos. I hope that this forum can give me more advise to point me in the right direction.

So far my favorite lenses are the 50mm & the 200mm primes.

Some examples of my pictures so far:

Thanks for letting me ramble, I look forward to participating in the future.

Welcome aboard, and thanks for the intro! The forum might not be a complete substitute for a club, but it's hard to find a more supportive and helpful bunch than the members here

Welcome to the forum, think of all of us as a "virtual" camera club.
