New to Pentax

Hello,

I've primarily been a Sony/Minolta shooter. Recently, a good friend handed me a shopping bag full of old, vintage SMC Pentax-M and Other K-Mount Telephoto glass. I quickly remembered some of my old photo comrades who shot with Pentax back in the 1970s, so I started doing a little research on Pentax cameras and lenses. As I remembered correctly, the old, manual lenses got great reviews and the various online galleries showed beautiful images.

So... I found a sweet deal on a lightly used Pentax K-5, cleaned up the lenses and have started to shoot some images. I'm enjoying the process and the Pentax exploration. I look forward to perusing this site, learning more and sharing some Pentax images.

Thanks and best regards!

Aye, she hides in the shadowy corners and springs out on the unwary, forcing them to part with their money in the quest of Lens Buying Addiction (LBA).

Already happened... Didn't know that the Mistress had a name, but we've had a torrid affair on and off for a very long time, and she is not particularly brand or model loyal!

I can see you already know her to well, to be aware of those unpublished wee facts.
