..from the (not quite yet) great white north.

Normally there's be a good amount of snow on the ground...and sub zero temperatures. Forecast is calling for spring-like temps. over the next few days. Enough about the weather....

Glad to aboard this forum. Although I've been handling a camera of sorts for say, about 30 + years...I find I defer to others opinions readily. I'm finding the wealth of knowledge on this site refreshing, and well worth the reading.

I've been a Pentax user for about 20 years now. Started with an MZ7 film camera and an FA28-40 f4 lens. Later added a (cheap) Sigma 70-210. My first digital camera came up as a result of a good salesman. Was at a camera store, looking for a digital camera. Had tunnel vision and was set on either a Nikon or Canon. After some discussion of my needs (and current kit at the time) said salesman referred me to the K100D. Thus started my DSLR journey.

Since the K100 I"ve had K10D, and now own a K5. The K100 is still in the house, being used by my daugher. K10 was sold.Have a small collection of inexpensive manual Pentax lenses. (Which I enjoy using.) Also have a few autofocus. More details to follow in future posts.

Like I stated earlier. Glad to be part of this site. Just a brief story of my camera journey.
