Hello from Atlanta, GA USA

Sending a hello from the peach state! Just got myself into a Pentax K-01 Smurf Brick and have been enjoying it so far. Sadly I've only had it a few days and the weather has been rainy. Got mine in trade with the 40mm 2.8 XS lens.

Looking forward to learning some tips and tricks with the K-01, and maybe expanding my K mount lens options.

I have to say it is quite different to handle, but it feels so nice and solid at the same time. I am new to Pentax I have no other lenses outside of the 40mm 2.8 XS that I got with it. The IQ is great, and I feel like it will make a great replacement to my Lumix LX7 with that tiny sensor.

I plan on keeping the k-01 on me daily just to force myself to get used to it. So far I'm very pleased with the photos from it.
