Hello from Arizona

Hey Everyone
Got my first camera when I won it selling candy in Elementary school .... Flash was a one use bulb mounted in a metal dome that looked like a Home depot shop light
Loved it

A couple of 126 and 110 cameras later and I shot nothing but canon starting with an AE1. My daughter decided she wanted to study photography in school and not having the funds to buy her what I wanted her to have I sent her most of my stuff. Few thousand dollars of camera gear and camera gone.

3 years without a camera was long enough and after a ton of research I just bought a used Pentax K5. This camera feels GREAT in the hand, ergos are far and away better than my last canon "5D"

Struggling with lens choice on a budget and I am sure I can find what I am looking for if I just keep poking around.
Hope to be able to contribute with a bit more time behind this camera
