Howdy folks

Howdy, just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a new to Pentax (since Dec 1st) photographer. I shoot for fun and possibly to someday sell a few prints at art fairs and the like. I formally shot a Rebel XT but moved to Pentax for the better ergonomics and built in stabilization. As I don't like tripods and I like super telephoto photography and "cheap" prime lenses with stabilization. Should be picking up a 50-500mm here in the next few months. And a 600mm f4, 300mm f4.5, and a 200mm f2.8 Macro once I get a second job or win the lottery.

I look forward to conversing on Pentax related topics with a less troll like crowd than some of the other Pentax forums. I do most of my photo related posting at The Digital Darkroom - Forums - Powered by vBulletin but as there are only a few Pentax users there right now(I'm working on getting more into Pentax as new people looking to get into DSLRs post there, feel free to come over and help me out on that) I've had to go elsewhere for Pentax specific advice.

Welcome to the forum. I have a Rebel also, but like you, am drawn to the ergonomics of the Pentax cameras.... they just "feel right". Looking foward to seeing some pictures.
