Hola, from warm and sunny Puerto Rico!

Hola, from warm and sunny Puerto Rico!
Finally signed in after more than a year of visiting this forum regularly. It is a great forum, with excellent information for beginners, enthusiasts, and proís. Iím in my 50ís +. My first camera was a Minolta Maxxum 7Xi AF SLR, didnít really like it, but did buy a used Minolta MD SLR and loved it. After that I started in the digital world with Fujifilm, then back to the Minolta with the A1 which I enjoyed very much. It had good ergonomics, was small, lots of controls at your fingertips, but noisy images. Next, the well-known Lumix FZ-50. But still not so good image quality. Jumped to the DSLR world for the first time with a Canon Rebel Xsi. Much better images and very decisive autofocus. Had it for many years until I decided to go for better IQ. I practice backpacking and lots of hiking, so I was looking for something small and easy to pack. Panasonic again, yes a mirror less GH2. With a zoom lens that was heavier and bigger than the Pentax 55-300. I ended up selling it in about 3 months because the ergonomics were just unacceptable for me. Thatís how I learned about Pentax DSLRís, not that I was unaware of the existence of the brand and itís many great SLRís including the k1000 but as you know Canikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and others invest more in publicity these days. But for the people that like to immerse themselves in research and reviews, to find the right tool, well there it was, the almost perfect K-30. So know I have a K3, by far the best camera Iíve ever had. Still getting used to it, so many useful features, just great! Well thatís it for now. Iíll try to post a couple of images here.
PD. I am a Spanish speaker, apologize for any errors.
