Hello from Bulgaria

Hello everyone.

I'm new to this forum and decided to introduce myself. My name is Pavlin.
For years I've been using only point and shoots.
But since I have some old manual lenses I decided to buy a DSLR. The obvious choice for manual lens was Pentax, so I bought a K-5.
The first tries were quite disappointing and obviously using a DSLR with manual lens is quite unforgiving.
But on the other hand its a whole new experience and with the help of this forum I hope I'll regain my love to photography.
