Great forum -invaluable resource as I'm just getting back into shooting with a DSLR following a 15 year lapse. Had been wondering what to do with my stable of Pentax lenses from SLR days not realising that they had good compatability with Pentax Digital bodies, in a happy coincidence a colleague mentioned she had a K100D that had had minimal use if I was interested...
First outing yesterday and loving the K100D -any reservations re. a 6 mexapixel sensor and age of camera rapidly disappeared once I started shooting with it. Real bonus is the wealth of cheap ++ lenses on our local online auction site, most of these are virtually being given away.

Great to have you here! Your camera might be a few generations behind but that doesn't matter in the scheme of making a great picture...

Welcome to the forum, welcome back also to photography and backwards lens compatibility is just one of the joys of Pentax ownership.
