Greetings, earthlings!

I've come to these forums for info so many times since I rediscovered my dormant photo addiction that I figured it's time I actually joined and said hello! I've had Pentax gear since I saved up for a P30n in college (I couldn't afford a Canon at the time, and then I never looked back. And I use it daily.) There was a long stretch of moving the camera bag from house to house because I just couldn't bear to yard-sale it all, and then I finally dug it all back out a few months ago and found that, other than needing a set of batteries, everything worked just as I remembered it.

I'm not sure you could say the same about me, but I'm re-learning.

I also just recently added a Super Program to the stable. It's very pretty. Still waiting to see how it does at making photos, but I expect the answer will be "very nicely indeed".

I'm (for now) a film-only Pentaxian, but when I eventually go digital, I'm sure it'll be another Pentax; after all, I have 25 years worth of perfectly lovely glass hanging around the place....

If you'll excuse the horrible iPhone photo, meet the family:

Welcome aboard!
Don't forget the Marketplace here when you're in the market for buying that digital body. Great deals on used equipment there.

Welcome, nice family you got there! Those fifties will do splendidly on digital should you wish to expand.

Welcome aboard, the really good news is when you do jump to digital your film lenses will still work.
