I am new to the Forum

My first SLR was AshiPentax. I am happy to become a Pentax shooter again. My main shooting focus is sports Baseball in the spring, soccer in the fall and basket ball in the winter.

Welcome, or welcome back! I also came by a long road from earlier Pentax, shot their SLRs from 1983-2000 before meandering into digital. Enjoy the new gear, and have fun with older lenses too - don't forget to change the "Set Aperture Ring" option near the end of the menus to use old lenses with aperture rings! And don't worry about the odd rattle sound, the SR sounds like that when powered off.

Whew, the two most-asked questions are out of the way

Welcome to the forum, well certainly know how to pick your sports, all fast moving, usually under poor lighting conditions and sometimes indoors.
