multiple pentax owner finally joining the forum!

hello pentax forums!
let me start by saying I'll never be the one to enter a photo contest by any means, but I do appriciate a quality camera for the picture quality that it produces. I am not artistic by any means, and I personally use cameras mainly for action sports (motorcycling, auto racing, etc) or taking pictures of items for sale.
I've owned the pentax optio w-80 since launch and I absoloutly love it! the durability compared to other point and shoot cameras really got me hooked onto pentax products
I bought a pentax k-r for my little sister over three years ago and if has finally started acting up, so I scoped this forum to seek advice!
My fiance has herself a pentax k-5. (or is it the k-50?) bought it a few months ago with a couple of lenses for wedding photography and such. it was a great help that the image stabilization was built into the camera, i think it helped the lenses cost a little less!

Welcome, and I agree, we have a W-80 and a W-90, if you're an action kind of guy it's great camera.
