New to Forum, long time user of Pentax

Hello All,
Long time Pentax film user (K1000)...finally jumped off and bought my first DSLR a few years back, a Pentax K2000. My wife has been digital for a while with one of the other brands. I still wanted to be able to use all my film lenses that took me so long of a time to build up. That's when I found out about the K2000, and that I would be able to use them in a manual mode.
I love being able to shoot and shoot and shoot, not having to worry if I had the correct exposure, or enough film to last a walk-about, or PAYING for all the developement costs...just shoot what I see, delete later...
I founfd this site trying to find a simple polarizing filter for my 500mm miror lens, not happening. I found out from one of the posters who explained why I couldn't find filters..Tokina made it so! Oh well!
Now I'm looking at getting really serious about DSLR's....the Pentax K-3 Premium Silver Edition kit with the battery grip from B&H. I've read so many GOOD reviews about this new Flafship model, can't wait. Feels like being a kid again, like the time I got my hands on a REAL camera...a Graflex Century Graphic with a Schneider-Kreuznach Super Angulon Synchro-Compur 65mm wide angle lens. Only wish I could figure out a way to convert it to a digital that would be a camera system!
Anywho, thanks for the welcome and keep shooting....cameras that is

How exciting to discover the magic of digital, at this stage, once it has been flushed out and will love this forum, its a great place to pick up tips on the technology and explore the range of pentax and third party lenses
