Greetings From Missouri

Hello everyone. I am not new to this sight but returning after a long absence. I started out with Pentax K-10, K-20, Q, and K7, but added the Nikon D700 and D7000 as well as the Canon 7D. Eventually I sold off all my Pentax equipment and the Canon 7D to concentrate on one brand. At the time Pentax was just not offering lenses for wildlife and sports action to my liking. Last year I purchased the Pentax K-5lls and just recently added the Pentax K-3, taking advantage of the great buys on the K-3 by B&H Photo. Just got it today. I hope this will be the year that Pentax comes out with some telephoto lenses to match the Nikon/Canon 70-200 f/2.8 and the Canon 100-400. My current gear is the Nikon D600, D7100, Nikon D7000-Infrared and Canon 2ti-Infrared, Pentax K-5lls and K-3. There are positive and negative things about every brand out there and I like diversity. I maintain multiply galleries, Smugmug, Photium, Flickr, and 500PIX.

Jefferson City, from his Profile box on the Post, which (as you know if you are on the east side of the line) is the Capitol of Missouri.
