Hi from Canada

Hi all,
I started using pentax by getting a lens first. Friend had a damaged K-mount Tamron that he did not want. I thought what the hell and took his damaged lens and spent $50 to get it fixed and spent another $75 for a K1000 and 8 rolls of film and I was off to the races. Four years ago I bought a K200D. And up to a year ago still used the old tamron 28-300. In the last year acquired Pentax 55-300 and Tamron 28-75. Mostly shoot landscape and family shots but will take pics of anything. Would like to try street photography. I am not into photography for the quality of pics per se, but for the relaxation of the seeing and taking the shot. (find post-processing frustrating as hell) My next purchases: K3 (or leave Pentax behind and buy a bridge camera such as Lumix FZ1000) and a handheld GPS. (I get lost really quickly on my walk-abouts)

Welcome to the forum, that's a most unusual way to start off with Pentax.
